KidzZoneMainOWENSBORO, Ky. (3/8/13) – This week we are featuring Braden Spicer in the Kids in Da Zone column. Braden is a young student with a passion for investigations. Braden shares with our readers his life goal of being an Investigative Reporter. Without further ado, we present the writing of Braden Spicer…

I love to investigate! It’s special to me and always has been. I’ve always loved a good mystery and finding clues or even secrets in our currency.

Investigating can be challenging for some and investigative journalism can be hard for some people for different reasons.  Not everyone has a knack for investigating because it takes skill, curiosity, energy, a lot of heart, and a driven personality.  

In addition to these qualities, it helps to have experience in writing and finding clues.  Personally, I would have a dog by my side for sure.  If you cannot have a dog by your side, at least, you will need dependable backup.Braden

Last but not least, you will need supplies for investigating.  The first thing you will need is a notepad and a pen. Secondly, you will need a walkie-talkie. This works faster than a phone in case you need help.

Thirdly, you will need a voice-recorder to place in your coat and record so on one will know.

I hope to become an investigative journalist when I’m older so that I can inform people about what’s happening around them.  Thank you for reading.
