Don’t Mask Your Personality, Wear It!

By Mar’Che Boggess

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – With the continuing impact of COVID-19, many states have enforced a mask mandate in an attempt to decrease the spread of the virus. While some have chosen to sport a more generic mask, others have decided to wear ones with elaborate designs reflecting their personalities. I recently did a class project exploring how my peers are choosing to make the most of the mask mandate. Here are a few examples of what I found:

LaDarrell Toney, a computer science major from Kansas City, Mo., enjoys wearing his mask because of how unique and random it is. (Photo by Mar’Che Boggess)
Nicolle Singh, a political science major from O’Fallon, Mo., enjoys wearing her mask because it matches her outfit. (Photo by Mar’Che Boggess)
Jermarcus Perkins, a wellness major from St. Louis, Mo., wears this mask around campus because he wants people to know that he stands for Black lives. (Photo by Mar’Che Boggess)
