Republican National Convention, Part 3

Today is the last day of the Convention, but I'm recapping yesterday's events. I swear, every hour that goes by is exciting, and as a whole I underestimated how incredible this experience would be. I wanted to write a quick post to sum up the past 24 hours, before tonight's events.

Today I met my greatest role model in television, Megyn Kelly, who I have been watching almost every day since I was a fifteen year-old high schooler. She was everything and more than I expected, and it was amazing watching her tape America Live while a chorus of singers was rehearsing in the background... I don't know how she didn't lose focus!

When we were waiting for her to come out, someone asked me if I was her sister! Could I ask for a better compliment? I don't think so. :)

It's crazy to think that I've met so many important people, and it's all been by chance for the most part. They'll be just walking around inside of the "perimeter," which is the area the city has blocked off for security purposes for the Convention. We met Newt Gingrich yesterday, and former Chairman of the RNC Michael Steele.

After Paul Ryan and Condoleeza Rice spoke last night, a few other volunteers and I were lucky enough to have tickets for the Kid Rock concert, which was hosted under the biggest tent in North America, or so we heard. As we were going in, my roommate and I saw that Luke Russert, the son of the late Tim Russert, was ahead of us, so we snagged a picture with him.

I am BEYOND excited for the events that are about to happen tonight, and I cannot wait to share it tomorrow!

  1. I am so jealous you met Megyn Kelly! I scheduled my classes in college around when she would be on air - I'm such a big fan of her style of journalism! SO EXCITING!!!
