ROSS’ STORY_

Ross is a committed volunteer who has selflessly given much of his time to help others. 

Ross began to create origami sculptures at age nine as a way of coping with his diagnosis of Tourette Syndrome. It had such a profound effect on him, that he set up an origami club in his school, teaching basic origami to young people with disabilities.

In addition to raising awareness and understanding of Tourette syndrome, Ross volunteers his time to many different organisations including Tourette Scotland, Glasgow Humane Society, and the Boys Brigade. 

Ross constantly puts the needs of others before himself, all whilst coping with an unpredictable neurological condition. He believe that is everyone puts a little but in, the world will be a much better place.
