Q: Have you always been interested in politics?
A: Yes, I love seeing how laws are made, how big decisions are implemented, and how they affect millions of Americans.
Q: What about Maslenjak caught your interest?
A: It was surprisingly funny. You could see the personalities and questioning styles of the justices shining through.
Q: Why should teens pay attention to the Court?
A: It protects teens’ lives in meaningful ways. Every year, it decides cases that affect things like free speech and privacy rights. It’s important to be aware of the changes because they happen pretty often.
Q: What has the feedback on your blog been like?
A: When you’re interested in a niche thing, it feels like you’re alone. But that’s not true. I’ve found kids from all over who share this interest and want to write about it.
Q: Would you recommend starting a blog to others?
A: A hundred times yes. You don’t have to write every day. Write about what you’re passionate about, and see where it takes you.
