Hyslop Congratulates West Lothian Pupil Running for National Amnesty Award
SNP MSP for Linlithgow constituency, Fiona Hyslop has written to St Kentigerns Academy in Blackburn to congratulate pupil Rhona Aitken on being long-listed for Amnesty International’s Young Human Rights Reporter of the Year Award.
Miss Aitken is just 16 years old and wrote about the issue of human trafficking.
Ms Hyslop said,
“This is great news for Rhona Aitken and I know her teachers and parents will be extremely proud of her work.
“The issue of human trafficking is very serious and the more light shone on this issue, exposing such a horrible situation, the better.
“To have been long-listed from over 3,000 applicants from all over the UK is a massive achievement and I have written to her at St Kentigern’s Academy to offer my congratulations and best wishes for a place in the final when it is announced on May 9th.”
