Day 164- Jennifer, 19, Paisley

Jennifer has been volunteering at a doggy day care centre.


Which young Scot inspires you?
I feel my cousin, she always gets up and does things even when people bring her down. She inspires me because I was never like that at her age and I just love how sweet and amazing she Is, understanding the world but always seeing a happy side to it.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
I love growing up in Scotland because the land marks are beautiful and the sights you see are amazing, I remember when I was very young I had this dog called milo and he was a border collie. He went down the slide and it was very funny because it was icy.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
I overcame traveling for the first time last year when I started dating my current boyfriend, I finally went on public transport. Went on the bus and didn’t like it then went on a train to his and i overcame my fear when the train stopped and wouldn’t go.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I want to learn a new language, love to learn Chinese and would love to learn to drive but I’m scared to drive and would love to play guitar and piano more, I would also love to be around dogs a lot more.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Life is a beautiful place but we keep damaging it with pollution and bringing drugs and alcohol into the country, we need to stop dumping rubbish in the sea as it harms the animals.
