Day 176- Megan, 13, Glasgow

Every year in the summer Megan’s town has a Gala day and she has been on the junior committee for many years which allows her to talk and help the citizens of the town. Megan would love to go to collage when she leaves school and do a photography course and she would love to be a photographer for bands and tour with them.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about growing up in Scotland is that the education services here are absolutely brilliant all my teachers are lovely and i love it here in Scotland, healthcare is free here which is very good because 2 years ago in December my papa was diagnosed with Skin cancer and had to get multiple surgeries to remove all the cancer but today he is better than he was.
