You don't send a boy to do a man's job, but sometimes the job calls for a fifth grade girl. Eleven-year-old Ava Krasner had the chance to sit down and chat with her favorite TV star, Miranda Cosgrove, before her recent concert at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair. Following is Ava's story and interview!
When I walked into Miranda Cosgrove's dressing room my heart was beating so fast! I was VERY nervous but I was also VERY excited. I wasn't sure what she was going to be like but I had heard that she was nice from a friend. Also, it was my first ever interview!
When I started asking her questions I wasn't as nervous and she turned out to be EXTREMELY nice! It was a very fun thing to do. Not only was  she was really friendly during the interview, but she asked if we could do a funny picture at the end! It turns out she's just like us! It was a wonderful experience and I hope I can do it again.
