EXCLUSIVE! Pressley Hosbach takes us behind the scenes of hosting the Orange Carpet of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards

Seriously, is there anything Pressley Hosbach *can't* do? Dancer, actress, singer, fashion designer—and now, a host in the making: On March 4, Pressley hosted the Orange Carpet of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

We caught up with Pressley to get the inside scoop on this unforgettable night! Read on for all the must-know deets—and maybe even some hints about what's up next for this shining star.

Girls' Life: First off, what is your core memory of your night at the KCAs?

Pressley Hosbach: It is honestly so hard to choose just one moment because everything was so magical. But a moment I'll never forget is walking onto the carpet the morning of the show, when nobody else was there. It was like the calm before the storm, and it was so nice and fulfilling to just take everything in.

GL: And what was your coolest moment on the orange carpet?

Pressley: Getting to see some of my favorite Nickelodeon characters from growing up in real life. Nick was such a big part of my childhood, so getting to meet and talk to some of my favorite stars was so surreal.

GL: That's amazing! What was the most surprising thing about hosting the carpet?

Pressley: How fast it went by! I spent so much time prepping for that moment, and it felt like it went by in seconds.

GL: How did you feel throughout the night?

Pressley: Obviously I was super excited, but also a little anxious. I didn't know what to expect at all. Even though I had rehearsed and been practicing, it was still a little nerve-racking. Through all of these emotions, I still felt so confident, and I think most of that confidence came from the people around me that night. I had the best team and support ever, and I could not be more grateful!

GL: And what's coming up next for you?

Pressley: I can't wait to keep up the excitement this week with my fashion show! If you didn't know, I recently released a prom collection with Windsor, and we are having a fashion show this Saturday, March 11, to show it off! It is at the Irvine Spectrum in California, but it's also streaming on Windsor Live for those who can't make it. Tickets are free and I would love to see you there.
