My Brother, Thomas: By Cierra Riederer

Back in 2019, “Wisconsin Life” worked with students at Monona Grove Liberal Arts Charter School, or MG21. The goal was to get more high school student stories on the airwaves. When we first showed up in the classroom, there was one student who seemed to be particularly interested in creating radio and interviewing people right away: Cierra Riederer, a junior. She decided she wanted to create a story about her brother, Thomas, who has Down syndrome. Cierra interviewed her mother and grandmother about their love of him.
