Hey! I’m Kristen Scott, a social media influencer based in Paisley. I recently found out that I’m a Young Scot Award 2020 Finalist for Entertainment. I’m totally excited about that as it’s a really hard category.
The red carpet event was meant to be April, but I’ll need to wait and see how that goes in September as it’s rescheduled due to coronavirus.
I was also a Scottish top ten finalist for the BBC Young Reporter Competition 2020. The last year has been great for me as I’ve grown my TikTok following to 715K and Instagram to 66K.
I have been given a great opportunity to be able to try and get my age group involved with the Paisley.org.uk website. I’m 15 so hopefully, I’ll be able to talk about things of interest to you! I’d like to be able to use this platform to share what I’m doing e.g. if I’ve got an exciting event on, what’s happening on TikTok, advice on how to deal with internet safety, anti-bullying and positive body image. I’d also like to know what young people in Paisley want me to talk about. So, if there is something really important to you and you want me to talk about it please let me know.
Next time, I’m going to write a kind of Blog, on my typical lockdown day. I suspect a lot of you will relate! But you’ll need to wait and see. I’d also like to do a Q&A, so it would be great if you could get questions in for me to answer. I can’t wait to see what kind of questions you’ve got for me! Ps Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and turn post notifications on, so you can be early seeing my next post on Paisley.org.uk
