What does the name of your blog mean?
I’ve named this site Life With Me, as a Lifestyle Blog by ME, which means myself but also stands for my initials Marianna Elizabeth.
What camera and filters do you use?
I use my iPhone 8plus for instagram or a Canon 5D Mark III for blog photos or Sony G7x for youtube vlogs . I use the VSCO app and snapseed on my iPhone for filters, they are amazing! Check out my video for how I edit my instagram photos.
Where did you go to school and how did you become a TV Host?
I went to Kent State University in Ohio. I graduated with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Geography. I think having a degree was a good start especially if you want to be a news anchor, it is a must. But for being a TV Host it was more about a personality. I attended classes at Become a Host with Marki Costello and started a youtube channel. I would say try to work for free as much as you can to build a reel and be active on social media.

What is your nationality?
I feel like “What is your ethnicity or nationality” is a question that I have answered a thousand times. But if you missed the memo, I am Vietnamese and Italian. I was born in Germany and raised between Ohio and Europe. *Update Apparently I was wrong about that being my nationality, I was half right! I am Asian 44%, European 43%, Middle Eastern 7% and Polynesian 6%. Check out this post on how I came up with these specific percentages.
