Hana wants to be a reporter someday, so she hopes to learn a lot in her experience covering the 2008 presidential election fo the Scholastic Kids Press Corps. She's in the right place to do that. She lives in the first state in the U.S. to vote on the nominees for president. New Hampshire has long played a big role in who will be on the ballot in the General Election, and Hana will be there to see how it's done.
In her spare time, she likes to read and play soccer.
As a Kid Reporter, she hopes to learn how reporters create a story from beginning to end.
Hana is in the fifth grade in Concord, New Hampshire. She has a younger brother and an interest in preserving the environment. In case she doesn't become a reporter, she is maintaining an interest in paleontology.
"I like meeting different people, and I really like writing," she told a reporter for her hometown paper, the Concord Monitor. She was featured in the paper before her first major assignment: covering a debate between the Democratic candidates for President at Dartmouth College.
