Andy Murray inspires me because he has worked hard to get to where he is today.

Famous landmarks and famous places, because they are very cool to see them and they provide opportunities..

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I would like the older generations to know that not every young person is bad because most of the older generation think that every young person is up to no good.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Achieving my red belt because it is two belts away from black belt in Taekwondo.

I would like to join the Police when I’m old enough. It would mean a lot to me because it is my dream job.

If you put your mind to something and don’t stop trying to achieve it, even if it is the most difficult thing you have ever done, you will achieve it.
