Day 4- Christopher, 16, Motherwell

Christopher is a student at St Aidan’s High School and works at Domino’s Pizza.



What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about growing up in Scotland is the fact that adults do care about young people and are willing to listen to their views; people such as Bruce Adamson.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I would like older generations to know that young people do care about society and that we aren’t all anti-social people that sit on our phones all day.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievements were earning my President’s badge at the Boys Brigade and being elected chair of my Local Youth Forum.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I plan to train as a SFA match official as well as earn my Queens Badge. I also want to enter full time employment in the computing field.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Follow your dreams and make sure to get involved in any opportunities that you are passionate about as it will turn out well for you in the long run.
