Inspirationalweek- Exclusive Interview With Sashna Chetty

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.

  • 1. At what age did you realize that Presenting is the field you wanted to go in?
  • 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.

  • 2. What made you enter the Deen Tv Presenter Search 2014?
  • 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…

  • 3. After your audition, what emotions filled your body when the judges gave their comments?
  • 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.

  • 4. Are you studying in the field of Drama and Performing Arts?If not ,why?
  • 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.

  • 5. After the long wait and handing over your treatment to Deen Tv and finally been chosen as one of the newest presenters/producer of a new show, how did you feel?
  • 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.

  • 6.Throughout this journey, who’s has been your motivator and inspiration?
  • 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!!!

  • 7.Talk to me about the new show you presenting and producing?
  • 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…

  • 8.What Advice do you have for people out there who are aspiring presenters?
  • 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.
