I’m a Cedar Rapids Gazette investigative reporter, and I’ve wanted to be in the newspaper since elementary school, when I attempted to fry an egg on the sidewalk and called the hometown paper to cover the event. I think being a news reporter is the best job because I get to talk with fascinating people, ask them all sorts of questions and then share the information with readers.
