…I was number sixty-six.
Hah! It’s not really a secret, I’ve always wanted to be one ever since I realized how cool and influential VJs are [Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C]. I grew up watching them, after all. I didn’t have the guts to audition years ago because of self-esteem issues but now that I’m almost at the finish line, I thought I owe it to myself to at least give it a shot. The whole experience itself is a good story to tell and I would definitely look back to the day I woke up at 5am, got dressed and decided to do my makeup in the bus. To my dismay, the bus was full, I had to stand for the whole 1 1/2 hour-drive to Kamias; from there, I hailed my very first cab-ride in the Metro. I’m a big girl now! I did my makeup while waiting for my turn and chatting with other aspirants. I really had an incredible day.
So how did I end up here? I submitted an entry online, got a callback and did this without shame. A lot of slips and slides but what the hey, I enjoyed every minute of it and hopefully, you will too.
Because this is how I am; I never give up. Not really sure if that’s a good thing but it makes me happy. Last dance, last chance, last shot at a dream. At least I got to do it. 🙂
If you have a dream, chase it. You’ve really got nothing to lose.
