Today was the big reveal!!!
Same as the photo & video shoot, I first went to Beauty Court to get my make up done, then Sam, our manager, quickly drove the "first batch" of girls to .COM Group Hair Salon to get our hair done. After a bunch of giggles and selfies with our promotion poster (doesn't it look amazing!!!), we were on our way to our press conference venue - Estea Cafe.
We had one rehearsal of our self-intro speech, and we were all prepped for success. We ate sandwiches and Ginny, our image consultant, did our make up touch-ups. Soon, the press started to arrive.
Backstage, we were all overly energetic, and I spent some alone time practicing my speech and my little dance. Shortly thereafter, we were asked to standby.
We went on stage one by one to do our 8-beat dance and posed for the cameras (WERK IT!) and then lined up to do our self-intro. I think I did fantastic! Although my face started twitching because I was smiling for so long, everything went by extremely fast. We all got a personalized magazine cover and I loved mine!
Rewarded with a cup of soothing green tea, we soon packed up, and headed toward Fairchild TV (which was on the third floor of Aberdeen Centre) to do our TV interview. Fairchild TV is huge! We walked through the labyrinth of rooms, and arrived at the TV set at the end of the walkways.
We did the interview in groups of fours. Our interviewer, Carmen, was so kind and humourous! She was actually one of the judges for our audition! Our interview was relaxed and fun, all thanks to Carmen! I am not sure how I looked on TV, but I will definitely be on the look out for our TV interview segment, as well as supporting Carmen's show!
It was a long day but we were not finished yet! We went downstairs to Fairchild Radio right after to record our radio-promo line. Mine was: "I am #2 Ariel, and I am special because I have traveled to 24 countries with my parents!" I shouted towards the mic a couple of times, and after Mandy & Janice got the perfect take, we were good to go!
While relaxing and chilling at home, I couldn't stop watching our just released self-intro video and TV commercial video! Here they are:
