What have you both been up to these last few weeks now that things are opening up again?
Tonya: Well, I eat a lot. (laughs) I’ve been busy working on new projects. I’m working on a campaign for my boyfriend Chuki Beats, and I’m very excited because it’s my first time doing a campaign for someone else.
It’s nice that we get a busy schedule now after a long time of being stuck at home. Do you think that being home has limited you in being creative, or was it a nice way to discover new aspects of your creativity?
Cyra: For me, it had two sides. On the one hand, it was very difficult to be creative in my own house; I didn’t find the motivation to work from home when it was a total lockdown. I was watching series the whole time and doing nothing at all. But on the other hand, I feel blessed that it happened because, at the same time, I feel like I missed socializing with a lot of people. I struggled with a bit of social anxiety before, but I feel like it’s getting better now because I’ve missed it so much to be in touch with other people. So it’s like a curse and a blessing at the same time.
