I volunteer for SSF, coaching basketball. I have just finished my first contract for Carnival Cruise as youth staff.
Which young Scot inspires you?
There are a few people who inspire me but the real person that motivates me and inspires me is myself because everyone is the same but for those who would really like to make a difference in the world, you the real MVP.
What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
Being born in a different country and growing up in Scotland was difficult at the start. With the help of my friends and family it was easy and great.
What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
Being able to go to a place feeling safe while doing sports, meeting new people and starting a 2nd family.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement is landing my dream job, working in a ship as youth staff. Being able to travel and change young people’s lives through sports has always been a dream.
What would you most like to achieve in the future?
My future dream would be starting my own business or becoming a youth manager. I would also like to travel the world.
What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
My advice would be to get out there and have fun, see the world and learn new cultures. Don’t think too much, just do it.
