Anne Marie also worked as a journalist and photographer for the Gannett Company (the largest U.S. newspaper publisher) bringing a touch of theatre to her popular column, “Instant Message,” an uncensored column (written in a monologue format) where teens spoke frankly about a profound, life-changing moment in their lives.
