INTERN BLOG: I Met Shawn Mendes!

I'm on cloud nine because I MET SHAWN MENDES!!!!!!!!

When I found out that Shawn Mendes was coming into the studio, I freaked out. I’ve been a huge fan of his music ever since “Something Big” was released. I could not believe that he was coming in to get interviewed and that I would get to be in the room where it happened.    

The day turned out better than I could have ever expected. Not only did Shawn release two amazing songs, but I also ran into him THREE times. The first time was a total accident. I was just minding my own business walking in the hallway when he passed by me. He smiled at me and I froze. I completely lost my ability to speak. Later on, I filmed his interview and I swear we made eye contact a few times (GASP). After that, Brody called over all of the interns to take a photo with Shawn (thank you times a gazillion). Shawn was so sweet. and adorable. and tall. That moment will be forever ingrained in my memory.

Later that day, Demi Lovato casually dropped by the studio. I randomly walked by her sitting in the green room. I had to stop and do a double-take because I could not believe my eyes. DEMI LOVATO. What a queen. This place never ceases to surprise me. 

But that’s not all folks! The next day, I went on air TWICE to talk about my anxieties about turning twenty. Listeners called in to give me advice, which definitely helped calm my nerves. Jake also brought me onto his amazing Demi Lovato-approved podcast, 20-Somethings Doing Nothing, since I was officially a 20-something year old (who’s hopefully not going to be doing nothing). Jake and Ricki gave me some stellar tips on making the most of this new and exciting time of my life. You can check it out on iTunes or iHeartRadio
