Video: I Was on NBC Channel 5 News

When I started, I had no idea where it would take me! As a child, I always felt like I was going to do something with my life but I wasn’t quite sure what it be. I can truly say with each passing day my dreams are coming true. Weeks ago when I received and e-mail asking me to serve as the Lifestyle Expert on Channel 5, I thought this couldn’t be real! I mean all my friends know one of my biggest dreams is to be on 190 North, I felt like this opportunity could possibly put me one step closer to one of my dreams! Of course I immediately said yes and the rest is history!

Check out how my day went!

I arrived on set at 5:00 a.m.

When I arrive, Josh helped me getting ready for my segment!

He’s a pretty cool guy!

Preparing for my segment! I’m a perfectionist!

I’m busy don’t bother me please…lmao

I’m not going to lie, I was super nervous!

Then it was time for my segment with Anthony…

Check out video from the segment below:

The segment went great, when I was done the people at NBC told me I did an excellent  job and that they needed to have me come back!

Words can’t express how happy and blessed I am, God has truly been good and I thank him for each and every opportunity!

 Here are a few more behind the scene pics!

I’m so blessed to even have the opportunity, I know that there are only greater things ahead! It just goes to show dreams can and do come true!
