Dakota Herbin, Michigan

Fraser High School | Fraser, MI

What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

Like so many young Americans, Dakota Herbin wants to go to college but finds the financial burden discouraging.
