Starstruck with Sarah G

The word “starstruck” was out of my system ever since my stint at ABS-CBN. After all, interns are tasked duties which involve coordinating and talking to celebrities.

From all the technicalities, equipment, processes, etc., I learned to appreciate everything else I’ve seen after that stint.
