Which young Scot inspires you?
Colin Bradie- Programme Manager- Creative Scotland, He is so committed to his work but really values the young people he works with. He isn’t afraid to challenge the cultural norms but knows how to get our voices heard.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
I appreciate the way that our government deals with certain political issues and takes the young people into consideration for some issues. I enjoy that I can be involved within activism and that it gets taken seriously by key stakeholders and people in power.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
That young people are completely capable of holding responsibility and that they shouldn’t underestimate their power.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Remaining part of volunteering projects while balancing work and growing up.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to be able to empower people who don’t feel like it’s necessary to make their voice heard.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
I would say that it’s important to volunteer for something at least once in your life but don’t make volunteering your whole life. Life is more than just work, and you are more than just someone who works 24/7.
