Olly Tripodi announced as MTV Movement’s Inaugural Millennial Leader
It’s been an exciting few months of nominations, campaigning and voting and now we’re excited to announce that MTV Movement has its first Millennial Leader – Olly Tripodi!
Olly put himself forward for Movement because he’s passionate about young people being included in Australia’s decision-making process and wants to see his generation become a natural part of the political landscape.
“For a really, really long time I’ve been bloody passionate about advocating for the beliefs and opinions of young people and working hard to try and rectify some of those unfair stereotypes that exist about people our age. Because the truth is, is that young people are engaged, passionate, and informed,” said Olly in his acceptance video.
“I’ve got a big, big year ahead of me advocating for the beliefs of young people but I’m excited to sink my teeth into some hard work.”
Now that Olly has been announced as the Inaugural Millennial Leader, he will have the opportunity to have his voice (and yours) heard when he heads to the Australian Parliament House in Canberra. There he will be able to meet influencers such as politicians, members of the media and lobbyists and talk to them about his views and passions.
Tripodi will also be blogging right here on the MTV website, so we’ll be hearing plenty from him over the next year.
