She doesn’t only have the Beauty but she has the Brains Too. I managed to catch up with 21 Year Old Sashna Chetty and chat with her about a few things. After beating the odd’s and topping 100’s of hopefuls, Sashna became “Deen Tv’s” Newest Presenter and Content Producer.
Since grade four I’ve had a flare for news reading, then it changed and I wanted to be a lawyer. Presenting has always been a dream though, but it has also been one of the dreams I thought I wasn’t capable of accomplishing.
My mum inspired me to do it. I still had my doubts about being able to pull it off but she motivated me. I did it to make her proud. Seeing her happy makes me happy…
I was thrilled. It was an amazing feeling. I was also filled with fear of what was coming next but at this point the doubts I had about myself were gone so I felt a lot lighter. The experience has really lifted my confidence.
I’m currently not studying in the field of Drama & performing arts. Right now, I don’t think I can commit due to my work load and time. Many people think that having a degree means you have made it in life, NOT TRUE! Studying is important but if you get an opportunity that involves natural talent, do not let it pass.
I wasn’t expecting it. I remember being sad about not getting that call to say I’ve made it & just that second my phone started to ring. I jumped and screamed and almost cried. It was a feeling I would never forget.
Firstly, my mum. She always saw what I failed to see in myself. She has been my inspiration & motivation. Like I said, seeing her happy makes me happy. Apart from this, my friends have been there for me, always picking me up when I felt like I cannot do it and of course Luvalan Pillay himself was there every moment in this journey. So I take this opportunity to thank him as well for lifting my spirit continuously. THANK YOU LUVALAN!!!
The show I’m doing is called The fifth element. It is an environmental talk show & we aim to educate our viewers about our environmental condition & also the impact mankind is having on our planet. Viewers can expect to see loads of eco-tourism,eco-friendly businesses & also our young green heroes. I won’t say anything else, I think I will be ruining it if I gave away all the details so be sure to tune in when it goes on air which is soon. I’m not the producer of this show, however I am the content producer. If you want to make an eco-friendly change then the fifth element is a show for you…
DON’T GIVE UP!It gets hard but embrace it. Be yourself & use the opportunity to make a difference. Media is a great platform to make an effective change. Don’t let critics get you down, rather allow them to boost you and make you better at what you do.
