Podcaster Eva Karpman is only 8 years old, but she’s inspiring kids and adults. Eva is the host of Dream Big, a podcast that urges people of all ages to pursue their passion. Dream Big has been downloaded more than 2 million times. It is one of the top kids-and-family podcasts on iTunes.

Eva produces the podcast with her mom, Olga. In each episode, they interview an accomplished adult. Eva asks the guests how they got to where they are today and gets tips for listeners. Past guests include Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, one-handed concert pianist Nicholas McCarthy, and endurance athlete Sophie Radcliffe.

Talking to so many people, Eva has learned many lessons. Above all, she believes that anyone can achieve anything with hard work. What’s her advice to fellow kids? “Keep imagining all your dreams,” she told TFK Kid Reporter Gabrielle Hurd. “Make them become a reality.”
