How do you think that older people could be valued more?
“I don’t know really, I feel like families should value older people more, we tend to not really do as much with them as we should do.”
“Older people don’t seem to be respected half as much as they did when we were young.”
What do you think has changed from when you were younger that’s caused this attitude change?
“I think the family structure has changed.”
“Young people are always so busy with their own lives, I’m not sure whether it’s about them not being valued — it’s just more of a time thing.”

"Learn to trust one another. Once you have trust, you can build lots and lots of different relationships."
"We are all together. We are all human beings. Trust each other. Be respectful to everyone."

What was the greatest struggle in your life?
”I’ve got bad health. Pain.”
How’s that affected your life?
”It’s ruined it. It took it away. And that’s where the library, and books, and reading, is a lifeline for me”
If you had to give a piece of advice to someone who was going through a hardship or a particular struggle, what piece of advice would you give them?
“Read a book. Because you get to know yourself better through it. It’s only fiction, but there’s reality in it. It opens your own mind and your own thinking and intelligence. You start to second guess yourself and see that there are ways of dealing, and it can give you ideas. It opens you up to the possibilities.”
Why do you have the ambitions that you have?
“My parents, my mum and dad. My mum’s got her own company and that, so I guess I’m just trying to live up to her. What I want to do is own my own restaurant.”
When did you last throw your head back in laughter?
“Probably today when my mate fell over. It was really, really funny, you should have seen it. He was standing still and he just went over. It was really, really funny.
Wait that’s really bad… I’ve just realised what I’ve said now… that sounds really bad!”
