Iona Wyness


I was involved in various sports clubs throughout Primary School. These included Netball, Badminton and Football. Unfortunately when I progressed into Secondary School I had to give up these sports as they either didn't have the necessary clubs and/or I didn't have the time.

From the ages of 5 to13 I was involved in the Girl Guiding Community. I started off as a Rainbow, then went on to be a Brownie and eventually a Girl Guide. Through this I was able to be a part of the Haarlem Jamborette 2007 and got to go to Haarlem for 10 days with Guides and Scout from around the World. This was a very good opportunity as I got to learn many new skills and meet people from many different ways of life. We had to raise around 15% of the funds for the trip and we did this by doing fundraising activities such as helping people pack their shopping in a busy supermarket in Edinburgh and washing people's cars in the local village. The entire experience of the trip is unforgettable and the skills and things I learnt from the other people at the Jamborette will hopefully be useful for me in the future.


My interests include photography, creative writing and listening to music.

For the past 2 years I've run a blog on the popular website, Tumblr. Through my experience I have decided to teach myself HTML.

I am also interested in Criminology and anything to do with crime scenes.

Travelling is another one of my interests. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their way of life. I have visited many different countries including the USA, Holland and France.  




I studied French throughout my later Primary School years and carried it on into Secondary School. I have a fairly good understanding of the language.

Sharona's Restaurant

During my time at Sharona's Restaurant I did a variety of things. I started off as a Dishwasher a few nights a week. I then progressed on to being a Waitress and I really enjoyed this. I liked interacting with customers and being responsible for whether or not they got the correct order. I had to cope under a lot of pressure but I loved the sense of achievement when everything went perfectly.
