On the Air!

April 21, 2021

Riverhead Middle School eighth grader Neliann Rivera Hernandez and seventh graders Julissa Molina Lima and Ashley Solorzano were recently featured by Gianna Volpe, host of “The Heart of the East End,” on WLIW 88.3 FM.

Volpe visited and interviewed the students at their school, where they spoke on the air during a segment called “The Future” about their experiences and hopes for tomorrow.

Volpe also provided the three students with their own journals after hearing how one of the interviewees loved writing.

“It was a pleasure to meet Gianna,” said Solorzano. “Being on the radio felt good, because anyone could hear it and I could remind them to always follow their dreams. It's really important to remember that even if people say you can’t reach your dreams, you don’t have to listen to them. You have to believe you can achieve everything you want to do in your life.”
