ECR presenter Zaba tells DUT students to “focus on your passion and work hard!”

“Passion is everything. When you pick a career, make sure it’s something you love!” That’s part of the advice East Coast Radio presenter Zaba served up to students at the Durban University of Technology this morning (Thursday, 18 September 2014). “Don't worry about the money,” she told the scores of students who gathered to watch her in action. “Just focus on your passion and work hard at it. Everything else will fall into place.”
Zaba broadcast her 9am to 12pm show live from the DUT sports centre at the Steve Biko campus, getting to know students, giving them career advice, sharing fashion tips and of course posing for selfies.
“The two mottos I live by are: ‘Change comes in a little box called patience’ and ‘To get something you've never had, you've got to do something you have never done.’ So remember that everything changes but be patient. And when you go out there to get what you want from this world, take a few risks. They're very rewarding.”
While Zaba was live onair, DUT students got the chance to meet and interact with some of people who work “behind the scenes” at East Coast Radio, getting hands-on advice on technical and production issues.
ECR All Stars (made up of ECR staff members, including Sirshin Moodliar and Jason McCall from the 9pm to midnight show, Trending Tonight) were brave (or foolish) enough to take on the DUT Basketball Team in a friendly match. Needless to say, DUT won 88-42, but everyone had loads of fun!
