Oh man, the place do I even begin?
A bit of over a yr in the past, I, Rudene Hare, from Komani formally often called Queenstown within the Japanese Cape, obtained an e mail from gsport Founder Kass Naidoo, asking if I’d be eager on becoming a member of the gsport Group. After all my reply was, YES!
On the time, I used to be doing social media updates for one more media outlet, whereas additionally being a gross sales assistant at a sports activities store in Komani. I shared numerous sporting updates on my Twitter account and that was the place I caught the attention of gsport.
Other than work, I additionally maintain a Sport Administration Diploma and an Superior Diploma in Occasions Administration – now we perceive the place my love for sport comes from!
Not lengthy after sending my CV to Kass, I obtained a cellphone name from her providing me an intern alternative. I keep in mind I used to be so nervous on the day as a result of I spoke to Kass Naidoo and I even referred to as her “Mam” – LOL!
I began off my internship doing all of the social media updates and a few writing in between for the Newsroom.
I knew little about writing on the time, however the extra I began to write down, the extra I improved and fell in love with it as a result of I acquired to inform tales about girls doing an excellent job of their respective sporting codes.
Becoming a member of the gsport Group has allowed me to develop as a person, a author and creator. The perfect half, I’ve the chance to work with people who’re all the time open to help and share recommendation on the place I can enhance.
Being a part of the workforce has taught me so much about girls in sport, the work they do
and all of the laborious work they put into their craft.
So, my message for younger girls attempting to make it within the trade and are given a possibility by gsport – don’t take it with no consideration! Working for gsport is not going to solely permits you to develop as a person, it should additionally let you work with gifted girls and also you get publicity to know and perceive the ins and outs of the trade.
Lastly, I wish to thank Kass for giving me the chance to develop every single day and to Celine Abrahams (gsport Content material Lead) for all the time coping with me and all my questions, and for being affected person with me. It’s actually an honour being a part of gsport!
