It was during holidays and I had just gotten done with a playdate with my friends. My mom mentioned that I had to make a phone call. Jake Thomas, a reporter from the Salem Reporter newspaper wanted to talk with me about Kid Governor. He was doing an article on Civics Education and had already talked with Mary Beth Herkert about it. It was a quick call, Mr. Thomas asked me about Civics education and when I first learnt how the government works. He asked me why I decided to run for Kid Governor. I was not completely sure how these questions were useful to his article but I answered anyway.
A few days later, when my mom showed me his article, I realized the intention behind his questions and the importance of this topic.
