YAS Member Neil McLennan yesterday joined Radio Edu talk’s David Noble to host a radio interview with US Consulate Principal Officer Susan Wilson. The show came about as a result of US Ambassador Matthew Barzun taking part in last year’s Young Academy driven #AspirationalAdvice Twitter campaign.
The Twitter campaign, which ran from 1st January to 1st May 2015, engaged people from all aspects of Scottish and international society, and reached over 4,500 individuals. Ambassador Barzun’s advice, “Explore the globe! Study abroad, work abroad, travel abroad!,” made it into the top five most-viewed tweets of the campaign. Others who engaged include writers, sports champions, teachers and well known media figures.
