Day 191- Callum, 12, Edinburgh


Which young Scot inspires you?
The Young Scot that inspires me the most is “Grace Warnock”. I heard about her on the news and I think her campaign for invisible disabilities is inspiring, moving and extremely influential on many young people’s lives, both now and later in their lives.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
My favourite part of living in and growing up in Scotland is all of the amazing special days (St Andrews Day, Robbie Burns day etc.) and the history behind them. I enjoy learning about all of these days, the people they are devoted to and why.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I would like older generations to know that young people appreciate how much they helped to shape our future and make sure that they would help our lives and our growing up be as good, positive and fun as it can be.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement was moving house because I struggle to meet to people however I managed to overcome my fear of starting again and joined a new school, a new football team and make new friends in both of them.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
In the future I would really like to learn the guitar and become a professional football player. It would mean so much to me because I have always wanted to be able to play n instrument and being a footballer is my dream job.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
If I could give other young people all across Scotland a message it would be to face your fears head in and to make sure to never give up, no matter how difficult things get. I would also say that everyone has their own talents, so don’t try to follow what everyone else is doing.
