#FoYE19: Influencing New Careers

  • The latest in our #FoYE19 line-up is none other than Glasgow’s own Molly McFarlane

One of the most interesting things in the digital age we're now in, is the massive change coming to how we work.

A huge surge in how we use technology and the internet has rendered many jobs defunct - but created many new jobs in other areas.

One person who has felt the benefit of a newly created job as an 'Influencer' is Molly McFarlane.


Working in HR straight from school, Molly loved her job but knew that she was meant for more.

After a humble beginning on Instagram where she posted her OOTD (outfit-of-the-day) and travel photos, she began to receive recognition and her following only increased from there.

From being sent outfits to share online and launching a YouTube channel to share her Vlogs - Molly's popularity has soared.

Now based in Manchester and living what the says herself is her 'dream lifestyle', Molly will be coming to Gogarburn to share her experiences at our #FoYE19!

We're really excited to hear what Molly has to say and we're sure that our S1-3 entrepreneurs will think the same!

Haven't got tickets for your school yet? Get them here!

I'm really excited to support the Festival of Youth Enterprise because I'm truly honoured to be a person that can be seen as someone to inspire young people to take alternative routes, I never thought I'd be a person that could do that!
