Laura is in her 5th year at DCHS and is doing an N5 college course in hospitality.
Which young Scot inspires you?
My friends and family inspire me to be the best that I can be and they have never given up on me even when I have given up in my self and have not wanted to continue with my dream of becoming a chef.
What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The best thing about growing up in Scotland are the friends I have made. I don’t think that if I moved I would have made the close friends that I have today. Also the weather, I love it when it snows.
What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
If I could tell older generations one thing about young people and growing up, it would be that we love to spend time with them when we possibly can but our parents won’t always let us do it but we do love them.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
Right now it would be getting a C in my Nat 5 Hospitality Course but I do want to get a better grade so that is the reason why I am doing it because if I wanted to become a chef I need a better grade.
What would you most like to achieve in the future?
Right now it would be getting an A in my Nat 5 Hospitality Course because I am thinking about becoming a chef.
What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
If at first, you don’t succeed try and try again and if that doesn’t work just get lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of help.
