Testimonials

Bonginkosi Brian Khumalo - Masters Student and Specialist Lecturer at University of KwaZulu-Natal

"I studied Media and Communication with Taskeen and had the pleasure of being in the same Media tutorial with her during our studies. During our studies, I admired her drive and her willingness to always engage with media related issues and she showed immense dedication with her studies and always challenged herself in to learning new aspects of Media Studies.

She also assisted me with during our studies and improving my knowledge of Media Studies. Apart from her academic life, Taskeen also always sought to establish herself in the Media industry - from juggling her academic life with gaining the necessary skills and tools to learn more about the industry that she has chosen to work for.

A very dedicated, fun, loving individual with a big heart and appreciation for everyone. I would recommend her to be part of any team.

I thank you.

Docky Dockrat - Head of Programming: SuperSport

"Taskeen was a delight to work with at SuperSport as she has a deep love for sport. This was very evident in her writing and in her demeanour. She is focused and pleasant to work with with no task too big or too small. Taskeen also constantly met her deadlines which in a highly pressurized industry like ours is imperative." - 2011

Nazreen Ebrahim - Digital/Social Media. Written Content. PR. Media Liaison

"

Taskeen Khan was already a seasoned newsreader and active member of the Al-Ansaar Media and Communications team when we first met. Her additional work, at Supersport, which speaks for itself, lent authority and confidence to her work at Al-Ansaar.

She smoothly encompassed all activities into her schedule that went into managing the news desk for the afternoon weekday and weekend shows. Her personable character, eloquent articulation of her work and management of activities, inspired the rest of the team to work that much more efficiently.

I have not doubt that she will bring the same expertise and knowledge in her role at Cell C.
