Throughout college, I loved watching The Oprah Winfrey Show. I admired how Oprah made her subjects feel safe while getting to the nitty-gritty of their lives. As a viewer, I felt intense empathy and vulnerability with each subject. I drank in the drama of everyday human emotions that made it relatable to my life. Sometimes, I imagined myself in Oprah’s hot seat, and I visualized what I would share or not share. I guess it was just a dorky way to get out of studying for exams. But in all seriousness, what if you were interviewed? How much of your life would you share?
I recently experienced my first interview by a super sweet blogger friend, Jeanette Nyberg from Craftwhack. Jeanette and I met over a year ago via social media. She’s the type of friend you can meet for coffee and tell her anything that’s on your mind. When she approached me for this interview, I didn’t hesitate. I felt super comfortable telling her readers (and now my readers) who I am, and why I love creativity.
