MAFS’ Ella Ding opens up about adjusting to her new life
ELLA DING: No, I can't say that it's really sunk in. Like, I still feel like me. I'm still just doing-- like, my personality, like, I feel like nothing internally has really changed. I still just feel like normal Ella but-- and these are just all new amazing job opportunities.
I don't really know-- obviously going to the Logies, that was like the most surreal thing ever. And walking down the red carpet and seeing all these people that I've watched on TV for years or looked up to, like, it's-- that's-- in moments like that when you're like, wait, I'm actually here. Like, this is wild.
And then the podcast, like, being nominated for like the listeners Australian podcast awards, like, that was also surreal when that came in. We were like, oh, maybe. We didn't expect that at all. Like, obviously we were hopeful, and we were like, oh my gosh, could you imagine if that actually happened. And, yeah, we're going to the awards on the 21st I think it is.
And, again, like, that will be a very surreal moment, but I kind of like the fact that some things don't fully sink in because I think that it keeps you grounded and, like, humbled. And I think it's kind of a good thing in ways.
