Friday afternoon I had another most rewarding experience covering a political workshop for teenage girls in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey.

It was awesome interviewing teachers, politicians and the students!

Today I had an awesome assignment to cover for The Paterson Press!

I got to meet NJ Congressman Bill Pascrell (and shake his hand!) and watch him read to a bunch of children in support of the NJ Division of Reach Out and Read (http://www.reachoutandread.org/interstitial/?ref=%2f).

I’ll let my article speak for itself (and there are a ton of cute kid photos!): http://thealternativepress.com/towns/paterson/articles/a-congressional-reading-of-if-you-give-your-mous

My first published article of 2013.

I’m going to definitely do a lot more writing this year. I reached out to another online editor and will be covering some local town council and government meetings, which will be some unexplored territory for me as a reporter. I’m having a meeting with the editor tomorrow at 1 p.m.
