I still remember 3 weeks ago when the producer of ‘Kick Andy’ Show contacted me. Interested with my life story, they mentioned that they want to feature me on ‘Kick Andy’ and hope that my story will inspire many other Indonesians, especially the younger ones.
WOW !!! I feel so honored. ‘Kick Andy’ is the #1 TV Talk Show in Indonesia. Millions of Indonesians love the show simply because it’s unique, positive, and edgy. With the high-caliber host, Andy F. Noya, the show never failed to inspire the audience year after year.
The whole day after I received that super good news, I couldn’t stop smiling. People might think that I’m crazy yes ! Indeed I’m crazily happy hahaha…
2 weeks ago was the BIG Day. I went to the Metro TV studio for the recording.
So excited !!
Here’s the moments captured behind the scene.
Sharing my life experiences on ‘Kick Andy’ really brought me lots of memories, especially those up and down moments in my life. Moments when I struggled, when I fought for my dreams and when I shed my tears. Now I realized, that those difficult moments happened for a reason, not only to make me stronger as a person, but also to inspire others to rise up again everytime they faced difficulties and obstacles, just like what I faced many years back.
On ‘Kick Andy’, I also shared my life motto: ‘Living My Everything’
How I’ve been blessed that I can have many different roles in my life, I’m a Businesswoman, Author, Motivator, LG Ambassador, Model, Singer, and also a Mother. I shared all of these not to impress you, but to impress upon you that:
If I can do it, so can you !
There’s nothing impossible in this world. You can achieve anything you want, but you first have to believe! Believe in yourself, Believe in your dream. Have Faith!
Talking about dream, Bang Andy asked me at the show, what is my next goal? I’ve shared with him my 30th birthday resolution: “To create a positive impact in the lives of at least 1 million people, especially in Asia, morever in my own country, Indonesia’
Actually there’s 1 more thing that I haven’t shared, that I want to share with all of you today. My wildest dream is for me to have my own talkshow “The Merry Riana Show”, just like the Oprah Winfrey Show and the Kick Andy Show. Oprah Winfrey is my role model. She came from an unfortunate background, but not only she managed to overcome that, she also able to inspire others. People who have attended her talk show, they would say, “My life is better after talking to her and I will conquer the world”. When people saw her show on TV that’s how they became inspired and that’s how she also became as famous as Oprah. The woman can change lives.
Just like her, I do came from less fortunate background too (although compare to her, I was considered more fortunate). I managed to overcome that, and now I want to inspire other people and encourage them to make the most of their lives.
“The Merry Riana Show” could be just my dream. Eventhough right now I still have no exact plan on how am I going to achieve that, but I believe in every word that I shared with you earlier on.
Quoting my own phrase: “If I can do it, so can you !”
I would say “If Oprah can do it, so can I !”
