Things I Am Into #6

Not everything needs a lot of commentary; Things I Am Into is a place to dump media that inspires me today.

nine year old reporter Hilde Kate Lysiak

9-Year Old Reporter Breaks Crime News, Posts Videos, Fires Back at Critics by Tom Jackman

“I just like letting people know all the information,” Hilde said Monday. It’s also what she sees as her career, no matter what stupid adults might say about the future of journalism. “It’s just what I really want to do. And crime is definitely my favorite.”

You may have already come across this story on your Facebook newsfeed, but I really just wanted to highlight this young woman, Hilde Kate Lysiak, for working hard at what she wants (even in the face of haters!). At only nine years old, she has a dream and is unafraid of the amount of work involved to get what she wants.

Here’s what Hilda had to say about the backlash about her age and the material she covers: And for those of you who think I need to mind my place, I’ll make you a deal. You get off your computer and do something to stop all the crime going on in my town and I’ll stop reporting on it.

Bam!

What is your dream? What can you do to work towards it, even when people say you’re crazy?
