A&N have been involved with the local cable TV station for some time now and the director, BF, is very supportive of both of them. Just recently he asked if A was interested in going to a special event near Boston where an organization for scholastic broadcasting wants to teach kids how to be digital and video journalists, or at least give them a taste of it. The event is geared toward high school age children, but BF felt like his group of kids would get a lot out of it. His group is more early middle-school.
Anyway, he said they had to choose four kids, and A was one of them. He chose them with the POV that they showed promise in video journalism and hoped that one day they would come and be counselors/teachers at the local cable TV station. It's cool that he thinks highly of her enough to consider her for this event.
Either way, A is excited about it, as she is with any opportunity to be away from her overbearing parents. I can't say I blame her. I think one day N might be interested, as well, but only time will tell.
Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to TeksOnDemand for the pic.
