Julibeth is a teacher, wife and mother. Her son has special needs and looking after him demands all of her time. She moved away from Venezuela to Colombia. She has found that comedy has helped her cope with the challenges of lockdown, financial worries, being away from those she loves and the pressures of life. Here, she shares a series of videos she produced for TikTok.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and the International Institute of Social Studies in the Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers and undocumented migrants.
