As of the end of Novemberย  I will no longer be a Scholastic News Kid Press Corps Reporter. In December, I turn 15 and that’s too old for the Kid Press Corps – yup, washed up at 15! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So there is nothing like going out on a high note! I am very happy to announce that I and seven other Scholastic Kid Press Corps Reporters got an exclusive interview with First Lady Michelle Obama!

We interviewed Mrs. Obama about her last victory garden harvest at the White House, her experiences as First Lady, and what she plans to do next! We interviewed her in the Map Room in the White House.img_1842

I was also very happy to meet some of my fellow Kid Reporters, and my Scholastic editors in person. It is an AMAZING group!

  11. It’s been fun watching you since you were 9+. Can’t believe you’ll be 15. I’m so impressed with what you have done in the short period of time. Not many people get to interview the First Lady. You look taller than Michelle Obama. Great opportunity and interview. Know that you will continue to grow and we’ll see even greater things for you.
