Andrew Liang, a Scholastic News Kid Reporter from North Fulton's Johns Creek and a student at , filed the following reports from Charlotte, NC:
On Wednesday of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, I got the chance to interview another reporter. I had a brief opportunity to speak with Andrea Mitchell, Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent for NBC News. Having watched her numerous times on television on The Today Show and NBC Nightly News, it was very exciting to speak to her.
As a Scholastic News Kid Reporter, my latest assignment is to cover the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. In the early hours of the morning of September 4, when most of Atlanta was still asleep, my dad and I began our trip to the airport and ultimately to Charlotte, finally landing at the Charlotte airport by late morning. A little while later, we met up with Scholastic editors Dante and Kristen who had arrived from New York only minutes after we had. After renting a car for the four of us, we headed towards the convention center in downtown Charlotte.
