When you tune into Good Hope FM you are bound to come across Tamara Snow and her infectious enthusiasm. This Cape Town native is every bit the glam goddess as she is down to earth, enjoying a good old Gatsby and a walk on the beach.
Q: What has been your top 3 experiences on the Radio in South Africa?
A: In no particular order, I’d say…
Getting to work with some amazing creatives in the Entertainment industry every day is a dream come true and definitely ranks high on the list. Good Hope FM’s United in Hope Benefit Concert is up there too - so many talented artists, DJs and comedians came together to help raise funds for those affected by the Cape storm and the Knysna fires. It was such a privilege to be part of it all!
Another highlight for me is being interviewed as a Warrior Women in the industry. It was such a humbling experience and so cool to be recognised for the work that I do.
Q: What are your 3 best experiences in Cape Town as a city?
A: It doesn’t take much for me to be in my happy place. As long as I’m with my nearest and dearest, it’s bound to be a good time. Some of the things that come to mind are eating a chiproll from Lusitania while watching the sun set on the rocks of a beach in Camps Bay, watching Freshly Ground while picnicking on the lawns of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and making it to Elephants Eye! It was a tough hike I tell you but so worth the view!
Q: If you had to tell a tourist to go for one activity on his last day in Cape Town, which one would it be?
A: Well, if he’s tried a Gatsby, been up Lions head and caught a tan on one of our beautiful beaches, then I’d recommend he spend some time in the gem that is Bo-Kaap before he leaves the Mother City. While he’s there, he should definitely pop into Haas. It’s a beautiful space that has been created to showcase the works of talented local and international artists, and serves some yummy food too!
Q: What is your advice to upcoming kids looking to make a career on Radio?
A: Work hard, don’t be afraid to aim for the stars and stay true to who you are.
Q: What's the greatest fear you've had to overcome to get where you are today?
A: Definitely fear of rejection. In all spheres of my life and especially being in the public eye, it’s important for me to stay true to myself and allow my personality to shine through, despite the opinions of others. This has and continues to be a great life lesson for me.
Q: What's the one thing you'd like to achieve in 2018?
A: Ooooo, there are so many things I’d like to achieve this year. One thing that I’d like to do more of is charity work.
Q: What is your biggest passion in life?
A: I’m really passionate about self-improvement. I believe the better you know yourself, the more you’re able to effect change in your world.
