Meet your Angus MSYP's!

Brooke Barr - Angus South

 

Why did you stand to be an MSYP?

I stood for MSYP because I believed there was a lack of youth representation in my area and I wanted to change that. I also stood for MSYP because I wanted to do something out of my comfort zone and push myself to do something that I could benefit from while doing something good.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about young people having a say in national issues. I feel young people are always drowned out so SYP is a great way to help amplify the voices of us young people and I love it.

What is your favourite part of being an MSYP?

My favourite part of being an MSYP is the range of different opportunities you are offered. Also how it has pushed me to become more confident and make more friends. It’s a great opportunity.

What Are Your Interests Outside of SYP?

My interests outside SYP are music, rugby and skateboarding. I’ve played rugby for the past year and it’s a great way to relieve stress, it’s also a great sport to watch and it’s most definitely entertaining.

What is a fun fact about you?

A fun fact about me is I have one set of blonde eyelashes and one brown. A lot of people seem to think I only apply mascara on one eye which I assure you isn’t the case.

Daniella Faakor Damptey - Angus South

 

Why did you stand to be an MSYP?

I stood to be an MSYP because I believe in the voices of young people, that their voices matter and that they should be heard and listened to.

What are you passionate about?

I am extremely passionate about Education, Human Rights and Racial Equality. Specifically, when it comes to discrimination and I am working hard to raise awareness for change in these areas.

What is your favourite part of being an MSYP?

My favourite part of being an MSYP is speaking with young people and engaging with them on the issues that matter to them. Whether that is via social media or through zoom, I find that young people have so much to offer and make very valid points, when it comes to creating change.

What Are Your Interests Outside of SYP?

Outside of SYP, I am interested in Performing Arts. I love to sing, dance and act. It is a great way for me to express myself and begin a new adventure with each new character I portray. I am currently studying a Bachelor in Musical Theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

What is a fun fact about you?

I am a twin!! No, we do not look alike. Thank God (Joking!!😊...or am I!! 🤔)
