Eve, 15, Dunure
What is your best memory of growing up in South Ayrshire?
I have lived on a farm just outside Dunure since I was 7 years old. I like living on the farm and looking after the cows and sheep. Dunure is a beautiful harbour village where the people are really friendly. I am a member of Dunure Youth Club and look forward to taking part in activities each week. I have had lots of opportunities through the youth club such as learning to ski, rock climb and take part in water sports. I am now volunteering at the youth club as I think it’s important to give back to the community.
Tell us about your aspirations / goals?
After school I want to go to college and study aeronautical engineering and then join the RAF as an aircraft technician.
What are your biggest achievements?
Through volunteering I have gained my 100 hours Saltire Award. I’ve completed my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award and I am working towards my Silver Award. I play the bagpipes and I was delighted and honoured to be asked to play at the wedding of my youth workers’ daughter.
What makes you proud to be a young person living in South Ayrshire?
I like village/rural life in South Ayrshire. I feel there is a good community spirit and that people look out for each other. Dunure is a healthy place for young people to grow up.
If you were to pass on a message to other young people, what would your message be?
Try to be positive and don’t put yourself down. Lead your life as best you can.
If you could have a dinner party with a celebrity, who would it be and why?
I would love to have dinner with Scottish Rugby player Stuart Hogg. I admire him as a rugby player.
