i think jacuyra's piece was one of the best things i've heard on NPR in a very long time. She has a great voice--genuine, honest and authentic.

I want to hear more from her!!

Jacuyra,
You are possibly one of the most articulate teens out there. Would you consider hosting a national radio show for teens beyond Radio Rookies?
