Washington (CNN)As 20 candidates warm up for the second round of Democratic presidential debates in Detroit, 11-year-old freelance reporter Jaden Jefferson is proving his hustle in press gaggles and interviews.

When the rising sixth grader scored a one-on-one interview with candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts during a press stop in Toledo, Ohio, on Monday, Jaden said he didn't think too much of it. Then thousands of Twitter follows and media mentions rolled in.

"When I got all the media attention, I was like, 'Am I actually here right now?' " Jaden told CNN's Brooke Baldwin in Detroit on Tuesday.

Jaden has gained a local following for his sports packages and radio spots in his hometown of Toledo, where his parents work at the Jeep factory. National political reporting is another way that Jaden does his "own thing during the summer."
