Hey! I'm Heather, and I am an eighth grader at Santa Barbara Middle School.

When I was looking at the school, my dad pointed out that there was a reporter team of kids at the school. I saw that they had recently interviewed Al Gore, and I was hooked. When I joined Teen Press, I realized that it was really fun. One interview that really inspired me was the Al Gore interview. A lot of people probably say that, but I really found it inspiring. He really listened to the kid's questions, and answered them very descriptively. A dream interview for me would be to interview Meryl Streep at the Oscars. What would be even better is if I was walking with her on the red carpet! I do musical theater as a main hobby. One random fact about myself is that I love cookies and old movies.
