A beautiful voice and a big heart, 99FM’s DJ and Newscaster, Treza Cooper shares here her learnings and lessons from the past year, her self examination from Africa… her Afrospection.
Q: How would you describe your 2017?
A: It was definitely an “interesting ” year. Learned a lot about myself and what I need to improve to be better next year. It was also a year of disappointments, things that did not work out the way they should have.
Q: What was something good that came out of 2017?
A: Taking part in the South African Championships of performing arts, winning two medals and a trophy was one of my biggest highlights. Plus landing a job at one of the greatest radio stations in the country.
Q: What challenged you in 2017 and how did you overcome this challenge? (Advice you could share with us for overcoming challenges)
A: I was challenged a lot mentally. Being able to retain focus on the goals I set for 2017, some of which did not work out, proved challenging because there were a lot of distractions and obstacles I had to overcome. 2017 was really a year for learning about living life to your fullest potential, taking risks and stepping outside of your comfort zone.
