Karen Bayliss

I live in Fife, Scotland, and work for the NHS.

I did not have a good understanding about politics at the beginning but I wanted to learn more and I have learnt a great deal and have enjoyed every moment of it.

The most memorable part is meeting all the people that took part from all walks of life. I really enjoyed listening to the speakers and all the team members it has given me so much confidence within myself and I will be truly grateful for that.

I have learned so much of how we can make Scotland a better place and have a better understanding of how the taxes are spent in Scotland.

I would like for carers to get a higher pay as they have worked extremely hard in this pandemic and think all carers and NHS should get more than the living wage. I would also like to see the wage go up for 16 year olds.
