About this event

Blythe McKay
The day that Blythe failed physics, her life-long dream of become a veterinarian was crushed. Initially devastated, she enrolled in a new program at UBC which combined agriculture with culture. This took her to Sweden for a year long exchange where she first learned about Farm Radio. Her passion for this lead her on MSc work doing field research in Ghana. Today she has found her dream job at Farm Radio international, linking her experiences in Ghana - as farmers are entertained and informed at the same time through the medium of radio and the language of entertainment.
