"I have loved working online. It is great to use Zoom. Working with the idea of 'Echo News' is great because we are able to talk about anything we want and have fun at the same time and laugh about it. I love the topics that we have chosen. They are funny and enjoyable to do. Also, we are using the techniques that we have learned over the year." - Erin Pocervina
