Helping in Glasgow’s bid to be the host city has shown me that the Youth Olympic Games isn’t just for the athletes (I am a perfect example of this) but for every young person around the world. The bid aims to inspire young people to make a difference in their own lives, to feel empowered and believe in themselves that they can help make a difference in the world.

Glasgow is the perfect place to promote this message because we have the three Ps. People, Passion and Places.

Glasgow is probably one of the most welcoming cities and the people here are great, we have the drive and will to produce an incredible Youth Olympics. With most of the venues that are needed being set up for the Commonwealth Games next year, not forgetting to mention our amazing attractions and scenery, we are all set!
