“From early May to late August 2010, Farhan’s abilities as a journalist and writer were a tremendous asset to Whitecaps FC during some of the busiest stages of the club’s 2010 season. His commitment and enthusiasm helped our Marketing & Communications department deliver quality and informative written content, while his passion for the sport of soccer – and for Whitecaps FC – was reflected in his work and time with the club.
I believe the skills and enthusiasm that Farhan showed with Whitecaps FC this summer will surely lead him to a successful career in the field of journalism.”
- Bob Lenarduzzi, President, Vancouver Whitecaps FC
Farhan has twice interned with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC communications department. He was a media relations intern in the summer of 2012 and a club correspondent intern in the summer of 2010.
