What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
Free education and opportunities.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
That they are more than capable of achieving amazing things that people don’t always acknowledge.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Passing my driving test.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to get a degree in mental health studies and help make a difference to young people.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Don’t be lazy and work for what you want to achieve in life. It’s always worth it. Do what you want not what other people want.
