Hello! My name is Maria Sinitskvya. I am an ex banker and a full time mother of two daughters, years 5 and 7 (featured in episode 4). For family reasons, we were living in Spain when lock down happened. My husband worked in Russia and could not come to us as the boarders where closed. For 6 weeks we could not leave our apartment. It was very shocking and scary. I had an irresistible desire to do something to help. The best thing that came to my mind to distract myself from disturbing thoughts was to create the Quarantine kids project.
I began to write to groups of mothers living abroad and offer to participate in the project. I also wrote to my friends and asked for help.
To be honest, it was very difficult to work on a project and combine it with online education and caring for two daughters. Sometimes I did not sleep at night, and at other times I could not do anything for weeks.
So the release of the last 6th episode dragged on right up to August 🙂
In any case, it seems to me that this is an important project about a historical period in the life of all children around the world – quarantine 2020. I hope this will never happen again.
