Which young Scot inspires you?
My friend Emma inspires me as she volunteers and helps in the community.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
Education is good and the healthcare is free so no stress if you get injured about paying bills.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
My volunteering award (saltire) and 7As at National 5.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to get an accountancy degree from university, none of my family members have been so I will be proud of myself and they will be proud of me.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
I would tell people that they can do anything they want to do if they work hard and they should take every opportunity.
