Kirsty Hutcheson

I live and work in East Renfrewshire. I am an additional support needs teacher. I became a member because I felt it was important for Scottish people’s opinions about Scotland to be heard and I wanted to learn more about the running of our country.

The most memorable thing was meeting a wide variety of the people of Scotland, listening and sharing views and learning from professionals.

I’ve learned a lot more about Scotland’s devolved powers and their limitations. I now know more about taxation than I previously did and have discovered I am very passionate about environmental issues.

Having learned about the possibilities of environmental developments in Scotland I would like to see Scotland be pioneers in this area.
