One of TFISH's top priorities is to bring transparency to our work and the work of our partners. Through this series, we hope to give our followers a "behind the scene" look into our organization. The following article was an experience from our Marketing Coordinator, Mandy Au Yeung.
Last week, TFISH Executive Director Nancy Nguyen was interviewed as part of the "In Our Community" segment for local TV station KMVT. As Marketing Coordinator of TFISH,
I have been invited to a number of interesting events on behalf of TFISH, but this was my first time taking part in a live taping of a television interview.
Before the taping started, Nancy and I prepped in the hall way and talked with the KMVT staff about our work. Our graphic designer Sharmila also showed up representing TFISH. It was after work hours and a Friday night so we were so appreciative - and surprised - that she came to help out. This is another example of how TFISH staff goes beyond the call of duty. It's always great to have our dedicated supporters around no matter how big or small the event.
When we were called in, a small audience took their seats in the front row. A man from the sound room shouted out directions to the three cameraman. It took a few tries to get the camera angles and microphones just right. But once we started rolling, all the tension melted away and it felt like listening in on a normal conversation between two people.
After the taping, the people at the station expressed their love for TFISH, and the manager wanted to feature us on more interviews! I'm so excited about the prospects of working with KMVT and getting our story across to a greater audience. Hopefully, there will be more tapings to come...
