“In life, things wouldn’t always go as you wanted to but you have to learn how to roll with the punches,” frontline worker Peaches Dinnoo tells United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres in their one-on-one conversation about the challenges she faces raising children, working at home and coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. The coordinator of a training programme for prison inmates in Trinidad and Tobago, Ms. Dinnoo talks about how balance is the key as she raises two children in online school while also working in their shared space.
