What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
I think the best thing about growing up in Scotland is having my friends and Aberdeen town.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
Not all young people are bad and scary. I think this is important because I have seen a lot of older people go the other side of the road because there was a group of teens.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Getting an award in history for contributing in the class was my biggest achievement because since being in 3rd year this was my first award.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to achieve getting a job as a train conductor because it is what I have wanted to do for 3-4 years.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Dream big in life. I think it’s important because a lot of young people dream really small and are quite negative towards themselves.
