Which young Scot inspires you?
My brother really inspires me because he went through so much and has some mental health problems but he’s always happy and puts a smile on everyone’s face and for everyone who told him he wouldn’t go far, he proved them wrong and now sells his paintings with a smile on his face.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about Scotland is the people I have met that have helped me through hard times when growing up.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement is getting the family I have now because I am in care. It took my whole life but now I finally have them and they are perfect for me.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would most like to be happy and to prove people that say I won’t get anywhere in life because I am in care or I hadn’t had an education until 5 years ago, wrong because I can and have gotten so far already!

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Be yourself no matter what, because you’re one of a kind and there is a quote everyone should listen to which is ‘the original is worth more than a copy’, which means that you are worth more when you be yourself!
