Hello parents, teachers and students!
Have you ever heard an interesting story or had good news and wanted to tell someone about it? Or have you ever wanted to see your face on TV? Well, one profession combines both, by sharing the stories of the world around us, all while becoming the face of a city or a news station.
Stephania shares her journey of why she chose to become a journalist, the important skills they need to have to do the job and how at a young age she was inspired by her mother and grandmother to stay informed.
In the video, Stephania encourages students to read, listen and never stop learning. And she helps kids to understand why it’s important to always treat people well, so they can share their stories.
