Finally, I wanted to let you know that after over 2 ½ years with Amazing Kids! and being Editor of 13 issues, I am moving over to an Editorial Advisor role and letting a new Editor take the reigns. I have had such a fantastic experience as Editor and Assistant Editor, working with the best kids I have ever known. Ms. Rome, the founder and Director of Amazing Kids! has provided excellent guidance and direction. Now I’ll be helping the magazine become even better from a different role as advisor.  Mindy Yang, a Junior from California will be taking over as Editor. She has great writing and editing skills to bring to our amazing team. It’s been a privilege to be the Editor-in-Chief and I want to specifically thank all the kids who contribute their talent to make each issue of Amazing Kids! so fantastic! Thank you to all the Amazing Kids! staff for their dedication. You inspire me to be my best. I know everyone will continue to provide you with outstanding issues that entertain, educate and motivate.

Keep writing!
