Did you know I host a TV show? It’s on Tri Valley TV and I’ve been doing it for over a year now. It’s just kind of happened. I was recording a Helping Your Hometown with Dr. Marshal Kamena and the executive director Melissa Tench-Stevens featuring their Summer Camps, the only video camp available locally that provides students with a real life experience in a working television station.
Months later I got a call from Melissa. She told me that Robin Farh was moving on to a new job and was no longer able to host the show and asked if I was interested in hosting. I said YES! I had to say yes, TV has always been my Achilles heel. I’ve done a few things on TV over the years, but I’m always so hard on myself. It’s always been kind of painful to watch myself.
I had a chance to concur that and went in for a screen test. It went well and Melissa offered me the job. Once a month I come in and we lay down the show for the following month. The crew is amazing, I adore my TV family. I’m getting better at accepting myself on camera, it’s making me be more accepting of who I am, my curves, my curls and all that makes me, ME.
Overall, I’ve meet some amazing people and enjoyed terrific ‘Conversations’ pun intended! Thank you for seeing potential in me Melissa and Marshal.
