“I think there is actually the strength to be way younger than anyone else in this field. I feel like in this era of fake news to be pursuit of truth is becoming less common. In journalism, that’s what’s supposed to happen. You are in the pursuit of truth. I’m really happy that I get to do this because there’s not many other jobs where you get to propel other voices forward or other information to the forefront, especially as a teenager fighting for other teenagers. Having that focus in mind is the most important to me because we are the future, and we are the now.”
