Dear students,

For the first time in human history, staying at home is the way to fight back an invisible foe 😷.
Let’s be honest: yes, it sucks πŸ’©. But we in the #42Network are already shaping the future.
We can study πŸ’», work πŸ‘”, play πŸ•ΉοΈ and even have friends 🍻 remotely.
May this friendly competition (DDOS is not a valid IA strategy, I insist πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ) - unite us in these troubled times. Today we are staying at home 🏠, but tomorrow, we will lead the world πŸ—ΊοΈ.

Together 🀝.

Sophie Viger
42 CEO πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»
