Day 342- Faith, 16, East Kilbride

Faith is in S6 and is a member of the Scottish Youth Parliament and South Lanarkshire Youth Council.


Which young Scot inspires you?
Rachael Tidmore as she doesn’t let her disability stop her from reaching her potential.

What is the best thing about growing up in Scotland?
We have great leisure activities for young people so it helps to keep young people motivated and interested.

What would you most like people from older generations to know about young people?
That the youth of today are interested and motivated to do well because it’s a common misconception that young people don’t care.

What is your biggest achievement to date?
Receiving the Tommy Clark Award.

What would you most like to achieve in the future?
I would like to graduate uni with a 1st Class Degree in Law LLB with International Business.

What message would you like to give to other young people in Scotland?
Take every opportunity given to you! This is important to me because if I didn’t take the opportunities given to me today then I wouldn’t be the person that I am!
