FLEDGLING shop owner Kim Millar has been revealed as a finalist in the Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards.

She is one of three finalists nominated for a gong in the enterprise category of the glittering awards, following the success of her High Street business Perfectly Polished.

Kim, 22, had just been made redundant when she found out she was pregnant. And After the birth of her son she decided to set up a nail salon with spray tanning facilities, and since opening the business she has surpassed all of her initial targets.

Bruce Waddell, editor-in-chief of the Daily Record and Sunday Mail, said: “We are honoured to again help recognise the achievements of so many terrific, young people.

“They are a credit to themselves, their families, and, most of all, our country. It is a privilege to salute their hard work and selfless dedication.”

The Young Scot Awards celebrate unsung heroes, aged between 11 and 22, who have made a positive impact on their local or wider communities, and have been an inspiration to Scotland and its people.

There are 13 award categories, ranging from arts to volunteering, health, entertainment and community. The three finalists in each category are invited along to the awards ceremony in Glasgow’s Hilton Hotel on April 7 where special guests, including headline act Olly Murs, will be performing live.
