About this event

These accomplished people have experienced events that brought detours in the paths of their lives, leading them to combine entertainment with making the world a better place. Where your passion inspires your work and your work inspires your passion, and your role in the world expands to new heights.

 

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.
