Meet Raven Thomas, future journalist

The best part of my job is the chance it gives me to meet new, neat people. That's exactly what happened on March 2, when I was writing about Read Across America at La Mesa Elementary in Monterey and I met Raven Thomas.

Raven, 9, is a fourth grader who wants to be a journalist. So she's been asking questions about how to create a newspaper for her school; and for days she asked Richard Radtke, her school principal, to meet with her to talk about her idea. She finally sat down with him on March 2, just as I was walking out the door. 

Raven is inquisitive and persistent, two of the most important qualities a journalist must have. I can't wait to have you in the profession, girl!
