I can’t believe we did it! We’ve become international performers in Ireland. Who gets to say that?! WE DO!
I also can’t believe it’s over. Can I turn back time to 7pm and start fresh from the very beginning, when we first enterered the studio theatre and took our rightful places on our creaky black chairs? Can I go back to my very first interview in Ireland, my very first international conversation?
Performing in the John Hewitt festival has been one of the most inspiring moments in my life. Although I was nervous, I was mostly excited, especially for my solo journalism piece. Overall, I think I conquered my nervousness.
It was delightful to mingle with the audience afterwards, meeting likeminded people and making friends. Also, the wine reception was a nice touch!
