Day 106- Millie, 18, Forfar

Millie is on a Modern Apprenticeship with Angus Council!


Which young Scot inspires you?
A young Scot who inspires me is Lauren King. She is a young carer who campaigned with the Youth Parliament to raise young carers allowance and managed to do this herself

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about growing up in Scotland is that there are so many opportunities available for young people

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
That most young people are polite and hardworking. This is because many of the older generation have stigma of younger people being rude and lazy.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Getting my Modern Apprenticeship post with Angus Council

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
Still work with the council in marketing because it is a fun and engaging job.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Always be hardworking and try your best. Even if you don’t pass the exams you want, there are always alternatives.
