“I have worked with Furhana on several occasions. She was a news reporter with the local television station, KXLF and interview me on many occasions regarding economic development projects effecting our local economy. After working with several previous television reporters I found Furhana to be the one of the most professional and percise reporters with which I have ever worked. The stories she put together using the interview material were extremely well done and addressed the specific topic. With her international business degree she had a good understanding of private sector businesses and thus was able to report accurately the information I conveyed to her. I would highly recommend Furhana for any position she for which may submit an application. I believe she has a strong work ethic and is very intellegant. Her international background can have great value to any company that deals in the world marketplace.

“Furhana is a smart, poised reporter and anchor who is among the hardest working journalists I have supervised. She has a great attitude and gets along well with everyone in the newsroom even under deadline stress. During the two and a half years she worked for me she progressed steadily, worked outside the shop to improve her reporting and delivery skills and built solid professional relationships in the community. She gets my highest recommendation. She would be a solid addition to any news operation.”
