Hear Me

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Last friday I went to the Young people’s day at the Scottish Parliment building. This was part of the Festival of politics. In the morning I attended at really interesting workshop about young people and conflict, then in the afternoon I took part in the Hear me! manifesto pitches. which was part of the Right Blether Project. I represent for Scotland Disabled Children in the debates and spoke about problems young disabled people face in accessing education. Lots of young people took part in the debate and we all had good points to make. Tam Baillie the Ciommsioner for Children and Young People chair the debate.  I was also really excited when I saw that Annie Lennox came into the chamber to listen to us debating.

Must be the Music

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Today I went to the filming of a music TV show for Sky 1  and it ‘s called Must Be the Music.

The judges ware  Dizzee Rascal,Jamie Cullum and Sharleen Spiteri.

Only one act got through , a rapper like Dizzee. I got to congratulate him after the show.

I think that Dizzee Rascal is going to be the next Simon Cowell.

I enjoyed watching the show being filmed.

This is a picture of the judges on the panel.

My Film-Making Weekend in Glasgow

Monday, May 31st, 2010

At the weekend I went to Glasgow to attend a documentary film making school. It was run by Diversity Films as part of their Starting Block scheme.

I enjoyed taking part in this event, and I learnt lots of new skills. I pitched my idea for a short documentary/drama about the problems disabled teenagers face in getting onto college courses that will give them the skills to follow their ambitions and interests. I think they really liked my idea!

Below is a photo of me operating one of the cameras.

Yesterday I found out that I have got a place on a 2-day documentary film-making training school in Glasgow this weekend. It is run by Diversity Films as part of their starting block scheme for new film-makers. I am really excited about this.

This Morning I went to the AGM of the Gilmerton Community Centre and guess what? I was voted on to their management committee. I am looking forward to taking part in the monthly meetings.  In their Annual Report their was a photograph of me at Wheels & Sticks and it also mentioned the film I made about the group.

My Busy and lazy Weekend

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

On Saturday I went to a open day at Bridgend Allotments It was very hot and sunny and I enjoyed spending time outside.

I also really enjoyed watching the Your Game VS Match of the Day on TV that included my Boccia Join In film and also me in the MOTD studio interviewing Lee Dixon with other young people.  I felt like a TV star for the day.

Today we relaxed in the garden and had a bar-be-que lunch, before going to my Boccia Club.

Art in the Morning

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

This morning I went to my art group, Wheels & Sticks.

When I got there I showed them my film about Wheels & Sticks and the group liked it and also asked me to make copies of the film for them.

Then Linda the group leader got us drawing different shapes.  I liked this activity because  it got me all creative.

Here are some pictures of me with Linda and Maggie.
