Hi everybody, I'm Katie. I'm 14 years old and currently a freshman in high school. My school is big and bustling, and I get to take classes with kids in all grades, which is different from my middle school. In addition to math and science, writing and reading are my favorite subjects in school. I take voice and piano lessons, and perform in about five shows each year - you could say I'm a theatre junkie!!! It's also a great way to make new friends.
I have two black and white tuxedo cats, Gwen and Cookie, and sometimes they sleep on my bed. They are both very expressive and purr contentedly when I scratch and pet them.
I'm learning to play golf (getting better and better - my mom played in college) and enjoy bicycling around town. We live near the beach and it's fun hanging out there and spotting the wildlife, both in and out of the water.
Being a reporter/anchor on Teen Kids News is really a lot of fun, as well as work. The producers are amazing and motivate all of us to perform at our best. In addition, I, along with the viewers, learn so much through the original and interesting story subjects. When I get word that I'm needed for a new segment, I immediately start to wonder, "What's this story going to be about?"
I hope you enjoy watching Teen Kids News as much as we do filming the segments. I am proud I have the opportunity to participate in such outstanding television programming aimed at kids my age. Thanks for tuning in!!
