My name is Fatima Mohamed and I am the Club Tour Coordinator for ‘Funny Business’ at Yuk Yuk’s Inc. My job responsibilities include booking our comedians into 14 Yuk Yuk’s clubs across Canada, as well as booking events such as fundraisers or corporate parties.

I graduated from Trebas Institute in the fall of 2004 and received a job two months afterwards with a great recommendation from my teachers at Trebas. All of the knowledge I gained at Trebas, I use today. The teachers are knowledgeable in their fields and have years of experience.

Before Trebas, I was just a small-time DJ - doing it on the side. However, during my one-year training at Trebas, I gained so much knowledge about audio and music and all the other aspects in and around the industry. I can say I truly learned to separate quality music from loud music and hear and identify sounds in music that I had no clue of when I was just DJ’ing.

The instructors are very experienced and still a part of the industry in one way or another, therefore, you get the latest info at all times to prepare you for what’s ahead. You feel at home when you are at Trebas. You will never find another school with so many down-to-earth instructors. I must say this is where my true career starts, and I want to say thanks to all the Trebas staff and my classmates for a wonderful year.
