YLUK Welcome Back Reception
Written by James Thomson:
Earlier this week I was invited to Edinburgh for some ‘welcome back’ drinks at the U.S. Consulate General. Susan Wilson, Principle Officer, and Robbie McGregor, Programs and Engagement Manager, have been amazing these past few years in providing opportunities for myself and other young people involved in the UK Young Leaders programme to engage with the consulate and with American politics in general.
It has been my pleasure working with Susan and Robbie, particularly on their Tartan Day celebration event which was held in Dundee back in April. This welcome back event on Wednesday promised a casual opportunity to meet new and old members of the network, to catchup with old friends, and to start talking about the academic year ahead. It was an enjoyable evening – thanks Susan!
