#WomenBehindTEDxCT Safeeya Mahomed

Safeeya Mahomed

Safeeya Mahomed joined TEDxCapeTown in 2015 as a XperienceED Lead and Speaker Coach, after she received a call from our curator, Justin Beswick, asking her if she’d like to join the team.

When asked about why she loves working with the TEDxCapeTown team, she echoed the words along the lines of what our previous respondents have stated, “The familial feeling despite our incredibly diverse backgrounds.”

We asked Safeeya a couple of quirky questions, in the hopes of getting to know her better. Have a read:

If you had a superpower what would it be?

The ability to read minds.

If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

A chameleon, because of its adaptability.

A giraffe walks through the door right now, vuvuzela in hand, what does she say and what is she doing here?

It doesn't matter, it fit through the door!

If you could steal the credit from a great work of art, film, book, song etc. which one would it be?

Harry Potter

If you could time travel, where would you go?

The 1970s

Which fictional character do you wish you could meet?


If you could sing a duet with anyone, who would it be?
