Hilde Kate Lysiak: 9-Year Old Investigative Journalist

(what's a "Modern Worthy"? click here to find out!)
The daughter of a reporter loves pursuing real news, and scooped the local newspaper Saturday with her reporting on a tragic homicide.

“I know this makes some of you uncomfortable, and I know some of you just want me to sit down and be quiet because I’m nine. If you want me to stop covering news, then you get off your computers and do something about the news. There, is that cute enough for you?”

  • What a great kid. I’m sorry that adults can’t handle a nine-year-old girl doing something like this. Their comments remind me of some relatives I know.

  • Faith Ann Sizemore

    That sass, I love her, those adult should be more concerned that these murders are happening not who is reporting them.
