What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?

The best thing about growing up in Scotland is the people and the places. Personally I find that us Scots have a great mentality and we are very welcoming people.


What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
As a young person we have so much to give to the nation and I feel our voices need to be listened to and considered.


What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement to date has been playing hockey in the same team as my Dad. I consider it to be something quite rare for a father and son to be able to do, and having the opportunity is something I am really, really proud of.


What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
In my experience, asking questions and learning from others that are more experienced, has been invaluable to me growing up.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
Personally I would like to do some travelling once I have finished university. It is something I would really like to do; visit new places and see new cultures, and I feel like it is a great opportunity before starting a job.


Which young Scot inspires you?
A young Scot who inspires me is my sister, Lindsey. She has been such a big influence on my life as I’ve grown up, and as a younger brother, her experiences and advice has helped me a lot.
