Day 122- Cara, 19, Fife

Which young Scot inspires you?
I would say Josh Littlejohn would be inspiring having co-funded the Social Bite sandwich shops and he tries to give to homeless people by feeding them and giving them jobs and he has now tried to build a village. He also hosted the sleepout in Edinburgh to raise money for that.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
I think there is lots of opportunities for kids to do the sports they want and to choose the career they want.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I don’t think they know how willing we are to push ourselves and challenge ourselves to get the opportunities that we want and go for what we want to do.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
I’d say my biggest achievement would be getting my grades because I worked quite hard for them and getting this apprenticeship too so working full time and getting qualifications on top of that.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I’d like to work towards my agree while I’m on my apprenticeship too and try to get as many qualifications I can while I’m working and a chance to work my way up the business.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Don’t feel pressured or forced to go to uni or do a course you don’t want to do; sometimes if you take a year out you can find what you actually want to do without feeling the pressure from people at school.
