In through the nose and out through the mouth…
Today was yet another whirlwind! My first two sessions were helpful in specific types of reporting and in covering controversial subjects fully, professionally and sympathetically. After a quick grab-n-go lunch, Nancy, our adviser, escorted us to NBC studios faster than any native New Yorker. I was completely starstruck, speechless, dumbfounded going into the sets of SNL, 30 Rock and The Ed Show and all thanks to Nancy!

Our tour guide, Maggie, was a “page” and explained how we may be able to apply and one day be in her place. Add that to my long list of dreams to fulfill. After our amazing tour, we returned to our room for a quick snooze and even quicker chat as we were still so speechless about the splendiferous day in the Big Apple.
