  1. Walking in to see Chu smiling beneath his mask each morning certainly brightened each day I worked in person the past 10 months. Thank you for highlighting his creative and fun approach to masking – there’s no doubt it positively impacted many of us the past several months!

    1. I’m smiling so big right now! It doesn’t surprise me that he would make a pandemic into a fashion statement!! You should see what he can do with wood pallets….The best part of being related to this handsome guy is that we also got some of these awesome masks too…❤ .( not w the bow ties tho)…One of my cousins loves her candy cane mask so much…she doesn’t care that its “out of season” I see her flaunting it all over the city but hey, she’ll be all set for Christmas in July! Lol We need more stories like this!

  2. I enjoyed making all the masks and bowties for my brother and then some so he can give away/share. Till this day we share selfies every morning of us in our gear lol

    I love you to the moon and back Chu!

    Your sister Hayme in Florida :)

  3. Walking in to see Chu in these fun masks and ties (and of course, corresponding Dad jokes) has been one of the best parts of coming on campus this past year. :) Thank you, Chu!!!

  4. This brightens my morning seeing this. Thank you to the entire Nater family for sharing their fantastic creativity with this expression of love and concern. Inspiring!

  5. I’m so pleased this was highlighted in BU Today. Creating something fun and unique during a stressful time is so refreshing and welcome. Kudos to you, Chu, and your mom and sister! Can’t wait to see you when I get back to the office, Chu – mask or no mask!
