Generation 2015 profiles: Elshan Fatahiany

My name is Elshan Abraham Fatahiany, I've recently turned 18 and I have been born and raised in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow.

I'm in my final year of secondary school at Bishopbriggs Academy. I want to move on to university.

For me and probably many others, the Scottish referendum spiked my political interest. It was great that 16 to 18 year olds got involved, since it allowed me to experience the political atmosphere and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It's crucial for young people to get involved in politics since any decision made by the government will affect them now and in the future.
