Kids Radio Corps


Hi, my name is Carola Lina Petrucci and I am 9. I love acting, dancing, playing piano... And I sing all day long (not during class though) for the thorough enjoyment of my whole family :-)

With my family I travel a lot to Europe. I speak English and Italian fluently and I am working hard on Spanish. When I grow up I would like to become a famous opera singer. Therefore you should listen to me now that you can afford me :-)

I am soooooo proud and excited to be part of IQ Kids radio, where "listen imaginatively" is a beautiful reality!

Hey everyone! I’m Conner and I’m excited to be on the radio with you. My passion is communications and entertaining. I used to make family newspapers and I still play all the dance music at our house. I am an avid reader, movie-goer and Minecrafter. I am also writing my first novel. When I grow up, I hope to continue in the entertainment industry. I have always been told I should be on the radio, and my class is the most supportive team you’ve ever seen! I hope to bring a nice and interesting factor to iQ Kids Radio.

During the winter I ski with my family. I've been skiing since I was three and for the last two years I have participated on the Western Pennsylvania Race Council, which is the race team at Seven Springs. I love other sports such as volleyball, field hockey and tennis as well. A few years ago I learned to play piano. Playing an instrument is hard work but I enjoy it.

My family and I enjoy traveling. We have traveled to Paris and Israel and spent a couple of weeks learning about the people and customs. I have learned a lot and I love to travel.

My name is Emma. I'm eleven years old, and I'm in fifth grade at Community Day School. My favorite subject is Math. I love figuring things out in my head. I'm also learning Hebrew. Learning a new language is challenging, but I think it is worth it.

I have two dogs, Murdoch and Coco, a little sister, Dania and I also have a twin brother. His name is Zach. Being a twin is fun, because you feel like you always have someone to talk to.

I have been skiing since I was five years old, and just recently I joined WPRC, or the Western Pennsylvania Racing Club. I have also been playing piano for a while now, and I find the piano to be a really beautiful instrument.

Over the summer, I am going to go to Honduras for a month, with CISV. CISV, or Children's International Summer Villages is an organization that encourages peace through children. CISV was started after World War 2, with the idea that if they got the world's children to become friends, they would strive for a more peaceful world. The focus is on teaching leadership and cultural understanding.
