Seventeen-year-old celebrity journalist Pavlina Osta is a marathoner, but not in the run-a-million-miles-and-get-sweaty way. Pavlina’s an interview marathoner — and last November, she made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for giving the most interviews ever in a 24-hour period.
Pavlina asked each interview subject five questions, which based on our calculations, makes for 1,735 questions. She also didn’t repeat a single one.
In a statement to press, Pavlina said, “It was an amazing 24 hours of adrenaline and I was determined to make it happen, and so excited that I did it.”
For Pavlina, the achievement wasn’t just about her. She added:
This was a world wide statement for women in media, particularly women in radio — we are out here throughout the airwaves making things happen! There’s a new generation of women in media and I’m very proud to be part of it!
In addition to setting world records like it ain’t no thang, Pavlina also published a book on Kindle last November called “Talk to Me: The Road Trips of a Teenage Celebrity Radio Host.” To keep up with the charmed life of the world’s most inquisitive teen, check out her YouTube channel, Pavlina’s Music.
