The Huffington Post (CLICK HERE)
“The 14-year-old Stock Picker Who Speaks the Truth,” 6 October 2013.

“Amelia Spalter and Brooke Mongeon, both 14, were recently anointed the best middle school student investors in the state. Impressive accomplishment, for sure. But what’s even more remarkable than their big win is the speech the precocious (and audacious) Amelia gave when she accepted the first place award.”

Bloomberg (CLICK HERE)
“Party in Red Hook Earns Slot Next to Wintour Met Gala,” 6 May 2016.

“Rosanne Somerson, the president of the Rhode Island School of Design, sat with Amelia Spalter, a teenage author and satirical rapper who amused guests by taking their picture with the lavender octopus inflatable she’d brought along (in other words, cute-ridiculous as opposed to the silly ridiculous of some of the outfits and accessories seen at the Met Gala).”
