Day 27- Lewis, 12, Livingston

Lewis is 12 years old, from Livingston and is currently in S1 at school.



Which young Scot inspires you?
My friend Dylan inspires me because he is my best friend and he makes me laugh. We play jokes on each other and we often play football together a lot. He is amazing and that’s who inspires me.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about growing up in Scotland is the scenery and the people who are very nice. The culture, the education centres, all the mountains, the lochs, the glens, the sports, the food, the traditional clothing is all outstanding.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
The technology of this generation is amazing; the consoles. the clothing. the shopping centres, the houses, the food and the drink, the sport is really really different. I think the people are really nice.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
I played rugby for about 4 years and I was very bad. It took me a whole season but I scored my first try in front of Murrayfield Stadium; it was big because it was my first try and I celebrated by pointing at Murrayfield.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would love to move to like LA, Manhattan or California and start either acting and singing or a career as a scientist and be very successful. I want to do these kinds of jobs because growing up I loved to sing and act then I got into science.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
My advice to younger people in Scotland would be to be the best you can be. It’s important to me because I had that motto in primary and I love that saying. I would also say don’t act hard, you only have one life.
