Hey everyone! This morning I had the wonderful opportunity to talk about my fundraising campaign on CBC Morning North 99.9FM which is based out of Sudbury. I chatted with Markus Schwabe about the struggles of being an amateur athlete trying to make it to the next level.
I wasn’t at all nervous but I did stumble a bit when Markus asked me why I am no longer financially supported by Athletics Canada. I could have simply said, “because I didn’t hit the standards”, but instead I go into a bit of a confusing spiel about numbers, charts and projections – woops! I also definitely need to limit my “ums” and not end sentences with, “but… yeah” if I expect a future in journalism! Oh well – a great experience and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get my story out there! Here is a link of the interview for those of you who were unable to tune in. Thanks guys!
