This week on NEXT: the pandemic has been a balancing act for first-gen college students like Mikayla, who attends Brown University while worrying about her family back home. We hear her audio diaries on navigating 2020 as an Ivy Leaguer and the daughter of undocumented immigrants. Plus, when a student gets COVID, what’s it like in the “isolation dorms”? And actor Luis Guzman on making Vermont his home. .
