The young journalist named Jeremiah Fennell had the opportunity to interview Vice President Kamala Harris on the 'Jennifer Hudson Show.'
Journalists often dream of interviewing famous politicians and people in power. They go to great lengths to get a one-on-one conversation with them even though it might seem like a wild dream at times. However, this dream came true for a 10-year-old young journalist named Jeremiah Fennell. The youngster recently got the chance to switch from his typical sports coverage to conduct an interview with a notable guest, Vice President Kamala Harris.
During their four-minute conversation, which took place on the "Jennifer Hudson Show" on April 20, they discussed a variety of topics such as Harris' devotion to the San Francisco 49ers, her interest in law and politics from a young age and her stance on combating misinformation regarding voting, reported TODAY.

During their discussion, Jeremiah inquired about Harris' interest in space travel and the duration she would consider staying there, given her position as the Chair of the National Space Council. Harris replied, "Is that a request? I would go to space if I could. There are people on my team, who do know that, but sadly there are those that would prefer that I would stay on Earth for the time being." The 10-year-old then tried to shoot his shot and asked the vice president, "But if you go and they let you have a plus one, can I be that plus one?"
As the audience applauded, Harris laughed and responded with a "Yes!" to Jeremiah's request. Jeremiah then celebrated with a big smile and a fist pump. In his final question, he inquired about Harris' advice for young individuals aspiring to become future presidents or vice presidents. Harris said, "Follow your passion, because all said and done, if you are fortunate enough, you're going to work very hard. And when you do the work that you enjoy doing, you do it well, and all the other things come."

The young journalist has made several appearances on Jennifer Hudson's daytime talk show as a recurring guest. On the April 7 episode, Jeremiah presented Hudson with a mug featuring pictures of themselves and discussed his upcoming appearance at the 2023 Super Bowl. During his initial appearance on February 10, Jeremiah shared his journey into sports journalism with Hudson. He said, "It all started when I was 4 years old because I was told through my parents that I might not be able to play contact sports because I have a brain defect and detached shoulder bone."

Jeremiah struck a deal with his parents and was able to participate in basketball, football and tee-ball for a year. However, it was only after this experience that he decided to focus on refining his skills in journalism and broadcasting. Initially, he aspired to launch his own YouTube channel to cover the Las Vegas Raiders, but his mom disapproved because the team was based in California at the time. It wasn't until the team relocated to Las Vegas and Jeremiah maintained his position on the honor roll that he received permission to launch his YouTube channel in 2020.
He said, "That’s what started it, but what’s really driving me is because I want to make my parents proud at a young age because my mom very much has health issues and my dad is a senior citizen. I want to make them proud at an early age."
