My body refused to run out of the studio while my voice disappeared leaving me stuck at the middle of the sentence, not remembering the three questions that jumbled up in my mind and saying nothing further than AND at the end of the answer that was not fully answered due to the adrenaline that freaked me out.
Ohhhkaayyy… You must be thinking that what you just read was super wacko but I was petrified and all those emotions I was feeling as I was on air. I still can not get over the whole experience.
I was interviewed by Seraj Bassa on the ‘Drive Home Experience’. The Alansaar crew were welcoming and kept telling me to relax and just be myself, but being the anxiety freak that I am, I froze. I was prepared for months before hand but as soon as I was put on air, everything I planned to speak about came out in *Gibberish*.
Maybe I’m just over-exaggerating but the emotions were there for sure. The 10 minutes interview felt like it was going on forever and I was so nervous that I repeated the word ‘personally’ so many times without acknowledging that I was even doing that.
Everyone had told me in advance that they were tuning in to that station specifically to hear me, which did not help when Seraj told me to imagine that no one is listening to you. But maybe I’m critising this whole chapter way too much.
Overall- the audience said that they enjoyed listening to me speak about my BLOGGING LIFE. And I was congratulated by many. When I had replayed the recording, I was scared that I would have hurt the audience ears with my voice but…. I was revealed that it was not that bad for my first time.
And as for Seraj, it seem like second nature. He spoke from the top of his head and remained totally relaxed. I guess he is used to it since he has been presenting for years on radio. I would like to thank him for taking some time of his show to interview me. It was a scary experience but I can not imagine not doing and learning from that for the future.
