For my second radio podcast, I wanted to talk about Frida Sofia, the 12-year-old girl who was trapped under the rubble of the elementary school she went too after the 7.1 earthquake hit Mexico. Her name became a big hit on social media, using the #fridasofia. Many people prayed for her safety and hope she would make it alive. The Mexican TV network, Televisa, live stream the rescuers trying to find this little girl and claim to have seen her tiny hand waving and saying she’s tired, according to Slate.com. Turns out this was all a lie and she never excited. Slate states that this trending hashtag was used for more viewership on televisa. The problem with this topic is who can I talk too? If I talk to people of Mexican culture, it’ll probably not be in English, unless I get people who do speak English. But I think it would’ve been better if it were people who were actually there.
My other pitch would be about the challenges 8th graders go through in preparation for high school. What are the steps and how they manage all of it plus school work.
