“We are excited to have Nico work with us for the summer,” Gary Allen, Graphic managing editor, said, adding that he will be assigning the youth a variety of stories, ranging from features to government and harder news stories. “He is a bright young man and has already demonstrated a real talent for journalism. I expect he will go far.”
