So today, we were approached for an interview. This would have been no problem for me, in fact it would have been great, if it weren’t completely in Mandarin.
Now anyone who knows me would have known that Mandarin and I do not get along very well. For some reason, it makes me panic, a lot. Which is extremely detrimental, especially when doing an interview. An interview broadcasted nationally.
Cue internal groan.
Fortunately, the interviewer was extremely kind, and she seemed to understand my predicament, despite speaking Mandarin with frustrating fluency and ease.
So yes, my first ever national broadcast was in Mandarin. Plus, I fumbled. Great.
