The day after we released Messages From Maryam, I took to Twitter determined to get Maryam's story in the public eye. I tweeted at a few friends, colleagues, and my Alma Mater, James Madison University. I was on a roll, so I thought, "Why not tweet at the TV stations while I'm at it?!" Imagine my surprise when just a few minutes later, I got a personalized message from my local news outlet, WHSV, asking me to come in for an interview.
This morning, I woke up and gave myself a pep talk to prep for my big interview. Excitement and nervousness filled me as I walked through the doors of the news station. While I don't plan on making any more TV appearances any time soon, I was really happy with how the piece turned out.
THANK YOU to WHSV for the opportunity to share Messages From Maryam. Find the interview here:www.whsv.com/content/news/New-childrens-book-inspired-by-Harrisonburg-refugees--408617915.html.
