EVERETT — Aryana Richardson, a Girls Inc. of Lynn Hero, interviewed “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King at a Hearts on Fire University event recently held at Encore Boston Harbor.
Richardson, a sophomore at The George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs, was selected to interview King because of her interest in journalism and her long-standing relationship with Girls Inc. of Lynn.
“We could not be more proud of Ary! It is indeed a joy to see her develop into a strong, smart and bold leader using many of the skills she learned at Girls Inc. of Lynn,” said Deb Ansourlian, executive director of Girls Inc. of Lynn.
“I am so grateful to Girls Inc. of Lynn and Hearts on Fire for this really cool and unique opportunity,” said Richardson. “It made me even more excited to pursue my career in journalism. I will always remember how Gayle advised that when someone tells you ‘NO,’ you have to flip it around and turn your game ON.”
