RJ, 16, Maybole


What is your best memory of growing up in South Ayrshire?


Playing basketball in maybole with my friend John.

My goal is to be a successful musician and to help people with my music the same way music helped me.

Winning a SAYF award and writing my own album


What makes you proud to be a young person living in South Ayrshire?


That young people are able to have a voice and a platform for it to be heard.


If you were to pass on a message to other young people, what would your message be?


Getting help for whatever you're going through shows strength not weakness and you should be proud.


If you could have a dinner party with a celebrity, who would it be and why?


Demi Lovato because I believe I wouldn't be alive without her. I would want to thank her for being so raw and honest about her life because it made me feel not alone and made me feel like if she could get through what she got through and succeed in her dream then I could too.
