How exciting to be on TV Right? Well, a lot of preparation goes into that quick 5 minutes. It looks easier than it is. First is really knowing your information and studying!!! I spent days of reading about the facts as well as googling the history of the companies.
The segment was about “Products Made In America”
If you know me , I am a very LOUD and FAST talker haha, So, for me it was
A. Knowing my info
B. TALK SLLOOWWWWW
C. BREATH! And talk in a LOOWWWWW tone haha
The best part is getting ready :) I arrived to Naomi’s Studio & Salon In West Hartford early that morning to have my makeup done by Naomi Herself! She made me flawless! Thank You Naomi!
I curled my hair earlier in the morning before makeup in a bunch of pipe curls and sprayed the with hairspray and didn’t comb out, i just pinned it all up in a large clip and ran off to get my makeup done.
once my makeup was done i flipped my hair over a rubbed my scalp as if i was shampooing my hair. when i flipped my head back up my hair was nice a full an i just sprayed.
When I arrived at channel 3 in Rocky Hill Ct, I was able to meet the producer and set up my products, they miked me up and said i would be on in 40 minutes, i took a seat and waited patiently with sweaty palms haha, it went by so fast. It’s tough when you get up there and so much is going through your head like, will I remember my key points, everyone is starring at me, theres bright lights on me, I’m sweating haha, omg look at the camera people in front of me, do I look good? am I smiling too much or too little and on and on!!!
but in a blink of an eye your done, and aahhhhhh im done. It was fun, I love every time i get to do a TV segment. It does get easier each time. I think i would like to change my career and be TV spokesperson or Host, I would LOVE it :) If you didn’t catch the segment, the link is posted below. Thanks for sharing the experience with me .
