From my bedroom to practice, my job at Teach For America, the Zonal Championships, dates and my ultimate departure to Beijing, the TV show My First Time: Competing at the Olympics spent 6 weeks following me and 2 other Olympians around last June and July to capture our lives leading up to the Olympic Games.
Now the show has been nominated for an Emmy!
Jesse Zookmann was the producer and cinematographer on the show. He initially found me on facebook of all places! (And I’m very glad he did!)
A huge congratulations to Jesse and everyone who worked on the show! Good luck!!!
Jesse and me at Olympic Team Processing in San Jose
It aired on Aug. 8th to record ratings for the documentary series and if you didn’t get a chance to catch it on TV…. take a look now!
