Hey guys! I’m Shehnaz, nice to meet you.
I’ve always loved radio and all things music, especially R&B and hip-hop. I attended my first concert in 2005, and since then I’ve somehow been to shows in the USA and Europe. I’m quite sure my bank account hates me for that one… but (forgive the cliché,) you only live once, right?
What’s that? A little bit more about me you say? Well apart from laughing every two minutes, being a bit too overly sarcastic or buying enough coffee I could probably create my own lake, in my spare time, I’m also a journalist and writer. You can catch some of my work, reviews or (rants!) on Yahoo!, The Independent and MTV.
I’ve also been lucky enough to meet or interview some of my favourite artists, *cue the excessive amount of name drops here* including my favourites, Beyoncé and Rihanna, as well as the likes of Jay Z, Drake, JoJo and Nicki Minaj. Trey Songz thought he accidently knocked my earring out during an interview a couple of years back – It’s safe to say I haven’t looked at hoop earrings the same way since!
In terms of random events… One time, Beyoncé stopped her show and personally sang happy birthday to me? But that’s a story for another time, I’m very excited to have joined Fresh, and I can’t wait to get started. The team are amazing, humble and down-to- earth people and I just know it’s going to be lots of fun! I’m super grateful for the opportunity and can’t wait to give back to the local community and my hometown, Music is something that has always managed to put a smile on my face no matter what, so I do hope we manage to do the same for you.
Thank you for reading! Catch up soon.
