We spoke to 12-year-old reporter, Hilde Lysiak to ask her some questions on being a reporter and some tips on solving a real life murder case.
Bright Lite: Hi Hilde, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hilde: Hi. I’m from Brooklyn. I’m 12-years-old. If you met me in person you would think I was a pretty normal person except that I love to report the news and I am addicted to sugar.
Bright Lite: I’m addicted to sugar too. When and why did you decide to become a journalist?
Hilde: I don’t remember a time when I didn’t want to report the news. I used to go along with my dad when he was reporting for the New York Daily News. I would travel with him all around the country. It was such a rush and never boring. Following my dad was always an adventure and very intense. I always knew that reporting news was what I wanted to do. I couldn’t imagine it not being part of my life.
