Day 131 – Liam, 12, Glasgow

Liam is in S1 at high school. His favourite subject is home economics and he is not too keen on religious education.




Which young Scot inspires you?
Dan TDM inspires me the most because he is really kind. He does lots of fun things and creates the most amazing Youtube videos. He also shows me how to do certain parts in a game and he is funny whilst he does it.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about growing up in Scotland is Irn Bru. I love how it stays fizzy for a long time and even though it can stain, I love the bright orange colour. I am not keen on the change they are planning on doing to it.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I would like the older generation to know more about technology and what it means. Like when they use memes and don’t know what it means. It’s important because it can take ages to explain things to the older generation.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
One of my biggest achievements is being able to go to hopscotch. It was a big achievement as it gave me the opportunity to meet new people and build my confidence as well as venture into new things myself and as part of a team.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would love to achieve more in the world of cooking. I would love to learn how to cook complex meals and learn how to impress people to maybe someday venture into my own restaurant or at least become a chef.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
The advice or message I would give to others is to have fun, even if you have been let down. Never let other people bring you down, hold your head up high and keep going even if you are faced with bullies.
