 Migrant Voice - Member in Glasgow interviewed about home-schooling her siblings during Covid-19

On 17 June, the Glasgow Times published a story about Migrant Voice member Yasmin, who has been home-schooling several of her younger siblings during the Covid-19 lockdown.

"We're being really cautious as a family so we are not allowed to go outside, we just go on to the front porch to get our Vitamin D and a little bit of fresh air and that's about it," Yasmin says.

"So there are a lot of arguments and a lot of conflicts because everyone is on edge and we are in close proximity for such a long time.

"It's been really interesting to see how all the personalities fall into place: we have the peacemaker, we have the one who starts the arguments.

"But we don't drag my mum into it. She's busy so we focus on sorting out our own conflicts together."
