From 18-21 September 2016 I visited Bosnia as part of a 'Lessons from Srebrenica' delegation. The total cost of my attendance was £636 and was funded by Remembering Srebrenica, a project of Ummah Help (a registered charity, of Newland House, 137-139 Hagley Road, Birmingham, B16 8UA).

Biography

Overview

I was born in Glasgow and attended Woodside Secondary School. I then studied English and History at the University of Glasgow.

I'm proud to have served in the Scottish Parliament since it was established in 1999.

Prior to my election as an MSP I was a teacher at Rothesay Academy, Springburn Academy and Castlemilk High School.

What motivated you to become an MSP?

I've always been interested in the power of politics to make a positive change to people's lives. As a teacher, I knew the importance of getting it right for every child, and that a quality education is key to a young person's life. I became involved in elected politics to help shape a more equal and fair society.
