Tomorrow I get to cross something off my bucket list: I will meet Ann Curry.
She is the legit real deal journalism BOSS (as I’ve mentioned before.) I admire her immensely both professionally and personally.
I know. A little bit of freaking out right here, right now. OK, maybe a lot.
I may or may not have agonized over what to wear. It’s a teal wool pencil skirt and navy polka dot blouse with a pink bauble necklace, just in case you’re wondering.
All of this is happening because I’m a Duck and so is Curry. Tomorrow, Curry will be speaking to The University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication. I was very luck to receive one of only 200 tickets. Win!
Now I just need to come up with a mind-blowing, WOW, super-impressive question to ask her should the opportunity arise. What if I actually got to meet her at the reception afterwards?
Goodness, I haven’t thought that far ahead, but I need to.
Must think of something amazing to say. Sigh.
Goal: Snap a pic with her at the event. Fingers crossed. And toes.
Have you ever met your professional idol?
