Now REAL talk as I’m getting super emotional writing this…I would have never learned how to network or know of NAB Show if it weren’t for my dad. Back in my college days when I was debating on pursuing a career as a broadcast journalist, my dad was told that if his daughter was serious about broadcast journalism, NAB Show was THE #1 tradeshow to attend. So we made a father-daughter roadtrip down to Las Vegas, where he showed me the ropes of networking with industry professionals and said the words I’ll never forget: “One day, you’ll be speaking at NAB Show. Just you wait.”
I ended up getting reconnected with NAB in 2018 where I had the opportunity of emceeing the Post Production World stage 3 years after my dad passed. Since then, I’ve returned every year in a different role, but with the same passion of connecting and bringing more women and creators of color to the forefront of this massive technology event. I even started my tech channel TechNicki Speaking and website to allow for my passions to take flight and have a platform. Never in my wildest dreams would I think I’d be a part of NAB Show in my biggest role yet. And one that is truly BEYOND a full circle moment. I’d like to think that my dad manifested this moment for me many years ago, but I am just getting started. I know he’d be proud.
This moment and opportunity will mean more to me than anybody will ever know. And I have some truly special people to thank as you KNOW I had to come back to THE BAY AREA, my HOMETOWN, to get some fresh photos for this announcement! Thank you to my sis Kim Le for doing my hair and makeup like old times, my girl Gina Lin for fitting me in her stunning designs, and my former MyxTV co-worker and talented Emmy-winning cinematographer/photographer Jon Santos for shooting me and bringing on Khattab McIntosh to assist with the most incredible energy and good vibes (amongst other talents) on set!
And to my fam (if you’ve made it this far, you’re a REAL one), thank YOU for the continuous support and words of encouragement throughout my journey. Life is truly worth living and sharing with y’all by my side!!
Now if I may ask my fam for a favor…please go FOLLOW, LIKE, and COMMENT on @nabshow and let em know Nicki sent you! See you on Instagram Live and at the show!!! P.S. Don’t forget to register using code NICKI
