Day 229- Erin, 16, Glasgow

Which young Scot inspires you?
A lot of young Scots inspire me; I can’t pick one. Just because of everything they do, like campaigning.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
I really like the concert venues because I’m really into music. The Hydro is really great and I like going there.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
That we’re not all the same. A lot of older people think that we are all scary and we are going to hurt them and we’re really not. I try to smile but they don’t really smile back!

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Probably completing Silver Duke of Edinburgh because I’m not really outdoorsy- so when I completed that last weekend it was great.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to be working somewhere that I really enjoy.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Go and explore Scotland; I never did that until recently and I really regret that because we have some places that are really amazing!
