A Real Child Of The Corn

Zac Brokenrope, a Youth Journalism International alum who is studying at Boston University, returned to an old theme this week in a fine essay he wrote for Thought Catalogue about his days detasseling corn back in Nebraska.
It was one of the first topics he addressed as a young teenager writing for YJI. Take a look at the detasseling story her wrote back in 2004.
Brokenrope wrote all sorts of wonderful pieces for YJI. You can read his journal entries, which include many of the best, by following this link.
It's great to see that he's still writing, still honing his skills, still getting better.
