Hi everyone! On behalf of Leaders UNITE, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, filled with happiness and success. To start the New Year on a positive note, like my Facebook status for a YAS!
For those of you that do not know, YAS is a Leaders UNITE social media movement. YAS stands for You Are Special and highlights the positive traits we see in one another. Feel free to post this as your status to continue the movement. For each person that likes the status, I will post on their wall, beginning with, “YAS because…” and then saying nice things about the person. It is easy and fun. So like my status- or make it your own- to give it a try!
We are happy to spread positivity on Facebook! The status can be found on my personal page and on the Duke YAS page.
Great news- we recently started a YAS page for Duke University. While we are still working out some of the tagging and other posting tricks, we a proud and excited to see what this page will accomplish. We hope that this page encourages positivity in the community and that everyone can enjoy every part of this project.
YAS is taking on Facebook in a new way! Each interested school is getting own YAS Facebook page! People can send in YAS notes anonymously or with their name on the virtual note. Then, the administrator of the page (either me or someone from your school who is interested) will post the virtual note on the Facebook page. The page will be filled with YAS messages! Feel free to comment on YAS messages or just take pleasure in the kind words of your peers.
For more information, commment or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to be an administrator on your school’s YAS page, let me know in the comment/email.
