Every day I wake up at 5:00 AM to read the news, create relevant stories, and rewrite them in a way that relates and connects to Gen Z’ers. Then I send this out to readers in over 100 countries all over the world, and this is what becomes The Cramm.

Traditional media is primarily written by and geared toward adults, and that’s not what we want. We want intellectual high-quality news. We want it presented in a way that truly speaks to us. I make sure to write The Cramm exactly how I talk to my friends. It really feels like a conversation, and through that I’ve learned to make journalism my own and to go out and create change.

Our audience started to really expand and grow. We have two and a half million monthly readers, which is the coolest honor ever to have that many people reading my writing.

We have an editorial team, a social media team, a podcast team, organizing team, and we have over 500 ambassadors, all Gen Z’ers from America to Zambia, helping out on a daily basis to better message that we have the power and the tools to inform ourselves and participate in the making of our future.
