Which young Scot inspires you?
Kieran Tierney (Celtic and Scotland football player) because he is class.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
Everyone is friendly, it’s a great place to live and there is a lot going on.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I want older generations to know that our opinions matter. We are the ones that are ingrained in the digital world and technologies so we have a great idea about them.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement was getting 6 A’s at Higher I guess. I was pretty chuffed with it!

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I want to learn to fly at some point and study Engineering at University.
