A couple of weeks back I had an amazing night at the Young Scot Awards as I’d been nominated for the sport section. It was an amazing night full of some really inspirational stories across all categories.
I arrived at the event and walked down the red carpet (which was pretty cool) into the Crown Plaza hotel where I got an amazing dinner and some pretty good entertainment!
All suited up for the AwardsAll suited up for the Awards Once dinner was over I headed over to the Clyde Auditorium for the presentation of the awards. After what felt like an incredibly long wait it was time for the sport category. I was hoping to win as it would be great to get the recognition for myself and for snowboarding but at the same time I was pretty nervous about going up on stage to receive the award. In the end the award deservedly went to Samantha Kinghorn, a wheelchair racer who is looking to compete in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth games! From then on I could just sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of the awards including performances from Jahmene Douglas, Nina Nesbitt and Misha B.
Check out this quick little video which was made to be shown on the night to let everyone know what I had done:
