Demi is in S1 and recently took part in the Baby Box Design workshop with Young Scot, Children in Scotland and Scottish Government.
Which young Scot inspires you?
My mum inspires me because she is so hard working. All my friends in Scotland inspire me because of how amazing they are. A band called Vansleep from Aberdeen inspire me by their love for music.
What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
Scotland is a privileged, safe country and we have free healthcare and education. We are lucky to have it and it is really important to me.
What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
Young people are creative and intelligent. We can be just as smart as adults and we deserve our voice to be heard and taken seriously just as much as adults.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
My biggest achievement is probably when my poem got put in a book and when my art gets noticed by people I look up to.
What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to achieve something either in writing, photography, drawing or music.
What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Young people are amazing and they do have a voice. That’s important to me because we really do deserve to be heard and taken seriously. That’s something I really care about.
