The Drone Girl 1. Why did you start The Drone Girl? Drone Girl originally started as a way to docu- ment my drone flights. I got a drone when Phan- toms had just hit the market, and I wanted to keep track of my photos, the things I learned, the ques- tions people asked me as I was flying, and where I flew. It really was a blog for myself, but then as drones started growing in popularity, there was a need for content about drones. I kept getting more readers, until it eventually grew into a full-blown news site www.TheDroneGirl.com. 2. How did you get interested in drones, and do you have a role model? I got into drones by accident! I was a student at the University of Missouri and needed one more credit to graduate. During my last se- mester, the school offered a drone journalism course. I had no idea what a drone was at the time, but I signed up and was instantly hooked. While the course ended, I wanted to continue learning about drones, which is why I created Drone Girl.
