Vanessa summoned all her courage and had her radio debut on WHAM 1180’s Bob Lonsberry show where she talked about her time in New Orleans. She did a great job despite some technical difficulties at the end. She couldn’t hear anything but kept going anyway until we were pretty sure it was disconnected. The week leading up to the interview was filled with anxiety and she didn’t want to do this, so her doing this with such anxiety makes it an even bigger success. She’s critical of herself, but I think she did fantastic!
Her part starts about halfway through.
