Katina Paron, MJE, is an editor, journalism educator, and author of A NewsHound's Guide to Student Journalism, a comic book that doubles as a high school textbook to civically engage young people.  Katina has been creating byline opportunities for young people for almost 30 years.

In this episode, Katina discusses her professional mission to help young people get published as reporters, journalists, and writers… the value of the content that young people create… the important role media can play in validating the voices of young people… exploring her own ambition, drive and personal value as a young woman starting out in the youth media space… the role of adults in fostering the development of young people’s talents… the importance of listening to young people and helping them see their place in the world… the impact of having someone ask you about your story… and finally, encouraging us all to be the strong women that we are, walking into spaces knowing we belong there.
