Kirstyn Cameron - Youth Worker

Kirstyn Cameron

I am the Youth Development worker at Epilepsy Scotland based in our Edinburgh office. I have the wonderful job of speaking to young people about their condition and supporting them through any issues. I run groups and residential weekends which means I also get to take part in the fun activities that we do but sometimes I have to put on a brave face for the young people when I’m doing an activity like dangling on a high platform in the air!

When I am not at Epilepsy Scotland I deliver art workshops to people with learning disabilities. In my spare time, I like to do some of my own artwork and love roaming around Edinburgh – walking up Arthurs Seat, going to the seaside and visiting galleries.

5 interesting facts…

If I could take three things on a desert island, they would be…
• A bed that never gets sandy
• A sketch pad with fineliner pens
• A supply of dark chocolate

You would never believe me if I told you I… couldn’t hear when I was younger

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a nurse (like my granny) or a nursery teacher

The best thing about working at Epilepsy Scotland is… that every day at work is different and a get to meet many wonderful young people.

If I had a superpower, it would be… to click my fingers and be anywhere in the world that I wanted to be
