Day 53- Ross, 19, Dundee

Ross is a 1st year MA (Digital/Creative Media) with Dundee City Council.


Which young Scot inspires you?
Andy Robertson inspires me because he has proved how hard work and dedication can make you reach the top. Robertson has worked his way up the football ladder all the way to Liverpool, yet stays humble and handles himself in the media limelight admirably.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about growing up in Scotland is relating to, and understanding other Scot’s situations because we share the same experiences and quirks.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I would want older people to know about the pressures of growing up in this day and age, as it is so different to when they were growing up, due to technology and social media.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement was passing all my exams as it gave me the platform to get this Modern Apprenticeship.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would love to have a job that I really enjoy and that I excel in. Loving your work and looking forward to it would be an ideal situation to be in as you’ll be passionate and eager to improve.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
To work hard and have fun. I think that it is important because working hard will give you opportunities to improve, and it’s also so important to enjoy yourself.
