“A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life”
I first got involved with social action, in 2012, through the Climate Challenge Funds junior grant panel, a joint initiative between Keep Scotland Beautiful and the Scottish Government. I have also volunteered with Plockton Small Boats Sailing Club (PSBSC), as an Assistant Instructor, and Highland 3 as a member of the Saltire Award Panel. I am currently the member of the Scottish Youth Parliament for Skye, Lochaber, and Badenoch being elected in 2015 and again in 2017. I was fortunate enough to be involved with a small local charity refurbishing computer. I subsequently spent five weeks in schools and community centers throughout South Africa and Swazi-land installing computers and delivering training. I am currently an Ambassador for the #iwill Campaign, promoting civil rights and the benefits of social action.
Leisure Pursuits & Interests
Enjoying life as it should be within Scotland’s finest University surrounded by friends from around the world. Making the most of the opportunities and privileges it provides including studying within the extraordinary seaside town of Saint Andrews in the kingdom of Fife.
Old Plocktonian and proud member of the University of St Andrews class of 2021, currently a Semi Bejant reading Management. (MA)
While pursuing my studies I am a member of the University’s Student Ambassador programme providing open day and campus tours to prospective students. I also work with local schools for the University’s Widening Participation programme to encourage children from underprivileged backgrounds to aspire to further education.
