Day 263- Beverly, 16, Glasgow

Beverly volunteered at her local library during summer. She studies Maths, English, Biology, Chemistry and Business at Higher Level.


Which young Scot inspires you?
Charlie Flynn inspires me as he competes in the Commonwealth Games even though he didn’t have a great start in life. He built a reputation for himself from nothing. He started boxing at a young age even with limited resources. Charlie Flynn helps prove to young people that no matter where you start you can make it to the top.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about Scotland is the scenery and nature in it. I love seeing forests, lochs, and wild animals.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
I would like people from older generations to know that not all young people are the same. This is important to me as everybody deserves respect no matter what their age is and sometimes people from older generations don’t acknowledge this.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would most like to achieve a successful career as an Actuary. I love maths and I would hope to further work on skills in maths, finance and statistics so I can become an actuary.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
I would like to advise young people to do their best and not to always follow the crowd.
