Sean Rowles, Director of Credit Risk at RBS was full of praise and said: "Lynsey Douglas is a wonderful role model and inspiration to anyone thinking of starting their own business.
"We are delighted to support the work of the PSYBT in recognising young entrepreneurs throughout Scotland.These talented young people are at the heart of Scotland's economic future."Indeed, after learning the ropes at Ingles the Jewellers, Lynsey took the plunge to set up her
own business and now successfully runs 'La Gems' shop and workshop, where she
carries out repairs and designs, and makes her
own range of jewellery and one-off commissions. Lynsey was presented with the award and Â£250 at the ceremony in honour of her
'Distance Travelled', which has certainly not held her
back.Lynsey told the 'News': "It has been a lot harder to have my own business because of my dyslexia, but I get a lot of help with my reading and writing from my family, and rely on my staff for certain things like writing cheques."And delighted with the accolade she
added: "I was very surprised to be chosen for this award because I did'nt know anything about it, but I am really pleased to have won the first of its kind.
