My experience on the hectic takeover has been like no other. My expectations were to learn a bit, laugh a bit and eventually takeover the show. What happened has been worth so much more than that, I've learned a crazy amount not just about my specific job but many others, as well as more about myself. I've made a whole bunch of new amazing friends that I love and the time has just flown.
Timekeeping is an unexpectedly complicated job, but one that I have really enjoyed. The Timekeeper (or Production Secretary) has to time every segment of the show and communicate with the TV network about commercial breaks. We make sure that the show is always on time and on your TV.
Every morning during this internship I have woken up happy and excited for the day to come where I will do and discover new things. Being on live TV is something that a few years ago I never thought that I would do or even enjoy but here I am having the time of my life ... so far😜. I loved attending the content meetings and brainstorms and seeing behind the scenes of production. This may be how I want to spend my life. There's a good chance.☺️
I am so grateful for this experience and to everyone at Okuhle Media and Hectic Nine-9 for making this possible and accommodating us. And thank you to the amazing Hectic Takeover Season 2 interns for being the bestest around😆❤️. All the moments that we had and the people that I've met will be forever in my heart and memories. Love you all.
P.S. To the whole Hectic team - if you ever get tired of Keenan you can call me.😉
