A Letter from New York Click here After you have read each story or article, answer the questions in the Answer Section. Remember last summer when I told you that I was planning to enter the TeenSay Magazine essay contest?
Well, I entered, and my essay, "Improving Community Safety," won! The prize was a weekend trip to New York City, with a visit to the TeenSay offices to see how they publish the magazine each month.
Three of us were chosen to go from Texas: My mom took me to the airport for the flight to New York, and I have to admit I was nervous! But when we got to the airport and met the other people in our group, I relaxed. The group leader, Ms.
Alvarez, was really friendly and easy to talk to. She is in charge of marketing and special promotions at TeenSay Magazine. She also introduced me to the other contest winners. She won a prize for the series of photographs she took when her family drove across the country last summer.
The other winner is a year-old boy named Eddie. Eddie won the TeenSay community spirit award for cleaning up and improving the neighborhood parks in his town.
Irene and Eddie both seemed like a lot of fun. I was surprised at how quick the flight seemed. Alvarez and I were sitting next to each other, she told me a lot about herself and how she had ended up working at TeenSay Magazine.
She said that as a young girl she had always enjoyed writing stories and interviewing people. She also loved planning and organizing events. After college, she got a job as a reporter at TeenSay, and then she gradually moved into their marketing and special promotions department.
She said that she still occasionally writes an article for them, but she loves what she does now. I told her that I was thinking about becoming a reporter someday, and she said that she thought I could do it if I worked really hard. Before I knew it, we were landing in New York.
We drove to the TeenSay offices downtown. All during the ride, Irene and Eddie and I were pressed up against the windows like little kids, staring at the buildings and the people we passed.
We were excited to jump in and start seeing the sights. When we arrived at the TeenSay offices, Ms. Alvarez took us on a tour. We got to see how a magazine goes from a rough manuscript to a finished issue.
My favorite part was seeing the bulletin board where sketches, rough drafts, and outlines get pinned up in sequence. We also met many of the employees, from illustrators and writers to photographers and editors, and they answered all of our questions.
By the time the tour was over, Ms. Alvarez could tell that we were getting tired. She took us to her favorite restaurant, and on the way there we had a chance to do some window-shopping and check out some of the sights.
All around us, people were speaking different languages.
