Having been left blind suddenly from a young age, 18 year old Danyl Martelli from Uddingston has been doing all he can to make life better for others.

His charitable nature has seen Danyl raise hundreds of pounds for Help for Heroes through a sponsored walk in addition to dying his hair pink for the charity.

Often found writing songs and poems on losing his sight, his brother in the army and stories in the news, Danyl insists that it’s about being standing up and being counted and being ambitious.

Having been accepted to study law at university, Lanarkshire’s shining star is taking the next step but says he’s not done sharing his talents.
