    “Normal is Weird.” by Jalen Marrero

    Do you consider yourself to be normal? Everyone is different, so whatever is perceived as normal in our daily lives is also going to be different for everyone. Though normal” means to be common or expected, when it comes to people, that definition doesn’t always hold true. Normal is a social standard/ construct that obligates people to change things about themselves to “fit in” into a group. 

    Join MMJ Jalen Marrero with students Iva Peric and Matthew Francis (Disney II Magnet High School), and English teacher Kristine Wilber (Disney II Magnet High School.)  With them, he explores what the term means in their own lives, how that was affected by the pandemic, and what the “new normal” means for them now.

    Five journalists responded to the theme: “Back to the Normal”. Click here to see all the stories covered in our Normalcy Issue. For more podcasts, check out our Podcasts archive.
