A Melbourne student's love of languages opens doors to the UN

A young Melbourne student is on his way to New York to speak at the United Nations after winning an essay writing competition.
 
Alistair Bayley is only twenty-one years old, but he's already reached some extraordinary milestones.  
 
Last year he became the first Australian to win the World Champion title of the Chinese Proficiency Competition for foreign university students and he was also named the Champion of Oceania and the Star of Chinese Language Learner.
 
And now Alistair is off to visit the United Nations (UN) as a member of a global youth forum, because of an essay he wrote in Mandarin - which is not his native tongue.
 
Listen here as he speaks to Namila Benson about the course his life has taken so far because of his love of languages.   
 
Presenter:   Namila Benson
Speaker:      Alistair Bayley, Monash University student
