Hi everyone! Yesterday I was on Alberta Primetime, a fairly new news show that airs across the province from 7-8pm! (If you’re in Alberta and reading this, you should start watching it! I think it’s so awesome and uplifting that in this time of crazy job cuts in the media industry, a new news show could start up like this! So support it, please! ;))
I was interviewed by Brandy Yanchyk, who was so great! She gave me some great journalism advice and I gave her the address to my parent’s restaurant so she could come by and have some noodle soup sometime! ;)
Out of all the interviews and TV appearances I’ve done since making the Top 50, this was the first one where there was actually makeup involved!! Haha! They said I didn’t need much (woo hoo!) but they powdered my face so it wouldn’t shine on TV. LOL!
So the shininess that dominated my Canada AM appearance didn’t repeat. Phew ;)
And as noted in the title of this blog, I put my hair up for the interview because thus far in everything I’ve done this month (except for a video blog), my hair has been down! So I thought the world (ha! I’m flattering myself, I mean the province :P) should see me with my hair up!
My segment only lasted a few minutes but I stuck around till the end of the show because, well, they let me! :)
Watching how the cameras work and seeing the behind the scenes aspect of a newscast is so interesting!
Seriously, being in the Top 50 has been the greatest experience ever!!!! Interviews, backstage in television studios, emails, tweets, and phone calls with reporters and news producers! Not only has all of this been so exciting, but it’s been such a great learning experience especially considering I’m in journalism!! A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! I have had the time of my life and I’m praying it doesn’t end on April 2. Pray with me!! ;)
Anyway, watch my interview from last night here:
I’m going to be making another video blog tomorrow, hopefully getting it up by Friday!! It all depends on my homework schedule! I’ve been spending the last two days being super productive in terms of schoolwork, trying to get these final assignments done and out of the way. So far so good. :)
I need to find some time to do some serious updating though, my websites have been lacking hardcore in the updates department this month! :( (But the frequency of updates for this blog have definitely shot up! Haha!)
Anyway, more soon! Keep your fingers crossed for me for April 2nd please!!
Thanks again everyone whose voted for me!!!! :)
