Laura Aznar.- Thiago Rodrigues lives in Cearà, a state found in Northeast Brazil, and being only 12 years old, he is in charge of an online news programme where he recollects what goes on in Santa Quitéria, his town. It is a blog named “A Voz de Santa Quitéria“, where Rodrigues publishes editorials and reports, and which has already received more than a million visits, according to the portal Comunique-se.

This virtual space has been active for four years, and soon it will become a portal to compensate the inability of traditional media to meet the city’s needs. Aforementioned has been stated by the author, who also highlights the importance of generating first hand news. “A Voz de Santa Quitéria”‘s followers are, at the same time, collaborating with the project, and nourishing it with new information of what is taking place.
