This is what the talk looked like. Behind the project sat Tritia Toyota who's a newscaster in LA. I assume she's still active doing a lot of projects and she took a lot of notes during our talk. Why? I have no idea. She probably didn't realize it, but I'm a long time fan and I watched her broadcast often. I remember her best on NBC. Check out the video below, it's old, but her cadence is perfect and her hair amazing. A touch of blush and a more natural make up style made her better than the rest. In a way, I think she was the true prototype of the Asian American woman anchor. Connie Chung was a big name, but her style was over the top.
A fun fact is that punk band, The Dickies, recorded a song called, "I'm Stuck in a Pagoda with Tricia Toyota" They spelled her name different, who knows why. I wonder what she thinks of the song? Had I got to speak with her, that would have been my first question.
The talk went well, and it was supposed to include a little about finding a job that's untraditional. I think we did a fair job in showing how it is. The weird thing is that the event took place in the faculty lounge, even as a student, I never got to go inside. Now, I get to see what it's all about.
