On Tuesday 31st January we had a fantastic day at the Copa 90 studios, it was unforgettable! Check out the Snapchat story below to get a behind the scenes view of what the whole experience was like for FBB Youth Voices.
After two long years, I was back in the Copa 90 studios presenting once more. I almost forgot how it felt, sitting in those chairs again was a stupendous feeling. The show started off with Laurence McKenna from The Football Republic, being interviewed by Marcus and myself. Laurence kept everything flowing so smoothly, which made our jobs very easy. After the show, our assistant producer Rashad asked Laurence about his experience, and he said: “I’ve had a lot of fun today, Marcus and Hashim were amazing presenters.”
Next up we had FBB Head of Communications Pez, who speaks so confidently and is an absolute legend. We asked about his life story and how he came to work for FBB – it was great to hear about his personal experience. Pez said, “I was delighted to be interviewed by these brilliant young presenters – it’s amazing to see their rapid progress over such a short period. They have some big plans for the future so make sure to stay tuned.”
Overall it was a wonderful evening and an unforgettable experience, and once again it was all thanks to FOOTBALL BEYOND BORDERS!!! I must address the amazing work from 17-year-old Lorenzo (FBB Youth Voices Member), producing the whole shoot and planning ahead for everyone. After the show, he told us all “let’s keep it up for the next show and make it even better!” A real leader.
