What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The air that is so fresh and the people that are so kind make Scotland such a kind-hearted place filled with fond memories.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
The internet is not something to be feared; it is now part of our culture and that needs to be understood.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement to date is probably being accepted into 5Rights. It is such a big achievement for me because I get to work with a team of brilliant people.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to get the marks necessary to get a job in which I am happy.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
The internet is your tool and one of the biggest in your toolbox. It can pose some dangers so when you’re using this tool be careful.
