“As a News Anchor and Reporter at NBC Washington, I have found that kids are capable of grasping concepts and envisioning solutions to some of the most pressing problems we face on a personal and global scale, I believe that kids deserve a platform to ask questions, express opinions, propose solutions and most of all, to be listened to with the thoughtful enthusiasm they themselves bring to the table.”said Barbara Harrison.
