Moxie, a 12-year-old summer resident, was recently featured in a new PBS Digital series called "Self-Evident," giving her take on what it is like being a kid and living through such turbulent times.

In an interview with The Republican Journal Aug. 14, Moxie said, “This isn’t the first time I’ve been in the press,” recalling the time when she was 18 months old and was featured in The New York Times.

“I was eating bugs,” she said, that were cooked by a chef.

Moxie was born in Manhattan and now lives in Rhode Island, but spends summers at her family’s home in Northport. She said she was not nervous during the recording of her segment because she was at home and used her mom’s iPad. The interviewer was also a family friend.

“I thought it went really good,” she said.

One of the biggest issues she faces, she said, is that she misses seeing her friends. In the premiere show, Moxie organizes and leads a socially distant Black Lives Matter protest in her community this summer.

“We made flyers and put them out,” she said. “A lot of people showed up and I was happy about that.”

The episode, titled “Being Ten in 2020” will air Monday, Aug. 17, on PBS’s original YouTube channel, PBS Voices, Facebook page, PBS.org and on the PBS video app.

The show offers a unique and personal look at a diverse group of 10-year-olds from all over the U.S., giving their tips on staying strong, safe and sane in 2020. Future episodes will be organized around a theme and will feature several personal stories from across the country.

In a snippet from Moxie's episode recorded two years ago, when she was 10, she said she is “old enough to know common sense, kind of, but also, not too old.”

Speaking on what she enjoys about being her age, she said, “Embracing being able to order from the kids' menu, because soon I’ll be 12 and won’t be able to order from the kids' menu.”

Series host Dr. Ali Mattu, a licensed therapist and clinical psychologist, said in the preview, “Kids see things differently and there’s so much we can learn about how to persevere (from them.)”

Moxie said what really meant a lot to her about doing the PBS show was that she was able to express how she felt about the Black Lives Matter movement — something she said is “really meaningful” to her.

“I didn’t do it because I wanted to get famous,” she said.
