Which young Scot inspires you?
The young person that inspires me the most is my ex best friend Kelly Carr. She inspired me because no matter how many knock backs she got she was driven to keep trying. She also liked to try new things like learning Spanish. Although we are not friends anymore her determination to keep trying has rubbed off on me.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
For me the best thing about growing up in Scotland is the Scottish sense of humour. Also the passion of Scottish football supporters and how your team losing can often ruin your whole weekend and sometimes for days. The Scottish banter is what makes me love growing up in Scotland. The reason being it can often makes peoples whole day.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I would like the older Generation to know that some young people are good caring people because I believe some older people look down on young people. They just see them as neds and just all round bad people. I believe this is important because I think young people get a bad reputation, especially from old people.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement to date was getting my first girlfriend. The reason it was so big was because I never thought I would ever get one girlfriend due to me having Cerebral Palsy and being in a electric wheelchair all day and every day.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would most like to achieve a decent job in the media and a new girlfriend in the future. The reason being I love all things media related. I’ve done countless media related courses like NC Media, a course at radio Clyde, a journalism for beginners course and a Channel 4 pop up. 

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
My advice to young people in Scotland would be always stay on the right path because you never know when you’ll end up being in with the wrong type of people. It is so easy to become an alcoholic or drug addict.
