What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
Being Scottish!

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
Not all young people are bad and are disrespectful; we all get told we are the same but we are not.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Getting the Modern Apprenticeship was my biggest achievement.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would most like to prove to people that I’m more than what I look like.

My message is to be happy and don’t hide who you are.
