Justine--Blog Update #7

Today, Liv and I taped a segment for Carolina Now on UNC-TV (public access television!). It was such an incredible experience, and certainly good preparation for future interviews and speaking engagements. I was definitely nervous, and got asked a question that had a component I wasn’t expecting-but I do feel I made the best of it, and the host put all of us at ease. Plus, as a former UNC-TV Kid’s Club Member, it was great to get to see my favorite childhood characters adorning the studio! 

This week I also turned in my final draft of my research paper—what a ride this whole research process has been. I am currently working on undergraduate research (unrelated) in an independent seminar this semester, and it occurred to me that I’ve been telling friends and family that this is my “first time doing research”—which just isn’t true! All of this work for WomenNC has most definitely been a research experience unlike anything I had done previously, and is making my independent work this semester so much easier and familiar. I am more excited than ever to present at the upcoming Local-to-Global Dinner at Hunt Library on the 19th of February, and travel to New York City. I still need to put finishing touches on my PowerPoint presentation due Monday, but for now, I’m kicking back and celebrating a successful TV appearance!

  1. Thanks for this post, Justine. We were all wondering how the TV interview went! You and Liv and Kate look great, with wonderful smiles-just like you learned in the training with Stephanie Scotti! We look forward to seeing the broadcast on Monday, Feb. 2, at 7:30 p.m. on UNC TV.
