{On the Air with NPR}

In the past few years, I have learned to embrace and take advantage of new opportunities that come my way. You never know when something might be a challenge that makes you better or just becomes an incredible experience. With this in mind, I always think that trying new things is worth a shot. Whatever it is, you can always learn something from it!

So when I received an email from NPR a week and a half ago asking if I wanted to participate in a Senate watch party and on a panel, my first thought was “I am not equipped for something like this.” Then I remembered my attitude of taking on new challenges, so of course, I quickly said “yes, I would love to participate!” And I am sure glad I did.

Last week I joined Robert Siegel from NPR All Things Considered and his producer for a Senate debate watch party. The debate was followed by a discussion for Monday’s show with the six women who had been invited that represented all political parties and opinions. Such an awesome opportunity and glad I embraced a chance to try something new!
