Day 203- Colin, 16, Aberdeen

Colin is finished with school, and is currently attending the Activity Agreements programme with Foyer Futures.


Which young Scot inspires you?
Karen Gillan inspires me because I love her acting skills! Emilie Sande because her songs have meaning!

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
There are no active wars or venomous animals (I also prefer the cold)!

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
Not all teenagers are bad; we don’t all disrespect elders!

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievements were my Nat 5 Physical Education, Nat 5 English, Science Award in P7 and my work experience in reception and Peacocks.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I want to be able to afford to travel and relocate, afford many dogs and enjoy life.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Stay in school and try your hardest.
