Last year, the GMA News reporter talked about why she uses Taylor Swift and Gloc-9 as models when teaching journalism to students.

According to her, aside from her being a “fan” of those pop artists, she sees them as “smart” musicians who infuse stories in their lyrics.

Kara related that as a music fan, she enjoys listening to the songs and memorizing the lyrics. Then, analyzing the meaning behind every word.
