YSI – 2013 – Global Village Newstalk Interview

Galway City Youthreach YSI winners were interviewed on Newstalk last week. 3 of our students spoke about why we chose the issue of bullying for our project and what we have learned. They also talked about their experience in Youthreach and how it has helped. The interview will be aired on Newstalk Global Village on Saturday the 23rd November at 7:45 p.m. We want to thank the NewsTalk team for taking time from their busy schedule and having us there.
A very special thanks goes out to Dil Wikramesinghe for her warm welcome, interest in the students.  She demonstrated a keen awareness of the achievements of our students and the students felt that they were valued for their contributions during the interview. Also thanks goes out to Francesca Lalor for facilitating the event and for showing us around Marconi House and her technical expertise during the interview.
