Day 338- Ewan, 15, Aberdeenshire



Which young Scot inspires you?
My older brother. He is really smart and helps me with a lot of my problems even though he lives quite far away and is often busy with his own stuff.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
The countryside. I like going on walks around peaceful places where I can think without there being lots of people around.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
Just because we are young does not mean we are ignorant. It can be frustrating to be talked down to about certain issues.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Cycling 50 miles in August, because I used to be scared of riding my bike.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to write superhero related stuff. It would mean a lot because I have enjoyed them since I was very young.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Make sure you vote. More young people voting will mean more decisions and laws will be made that benefit young people.
