Week 14 (8 Apr) - Eve, 15, Dunure

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.
