“I set out to make a career in a field that not a lot of people saw a future for someone like me – in the entertainment industry,” America continued. “I worked hard, but I was also fortunate to be in the right place at a time that the culture was ready.”

NAB Show, the trade show of the National Association of Broadcasters and the world’s largest electronic media show, runs through April 27 and features more than 1,700 exhibitors and 103,000 attendees.

FYI: America is wearing Tamara Mellon sandals.
