Day 328- Caitlin, 18, Paisley



Which young Scot inspires you?
My brother inspires me because of how brave he is after being in hospital for so long due to complications that resulted in him having surgery.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
We have a lot of freedom and a voice to speak up in situations that we are passionate about.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
We also need to have just as much of a say in serious situations happening now or possibly in the future.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
I never got extra help or recognition when struggling with dyslexia in primary so my last year in high school I created a programme for kids who struggle in classroom environments.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
For right now I would just love to take every opportunity this MA offers and hopefully in the process help others in any way I can.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Keep going and don’t let others put you down.
