Independence is absolutely essential for young people in Scotland - a Yes vote means we can safeguard free university education for Scottish students and use the full powers over the economy to create more jobs and opportunities here in Scotland.
Brothers Scott and Grant Hutchison of indie-rock group Frightened Rabbit have said that they're in favour of an independent Scotland.

When discovering my appointment to the Yes Campaign advisory board, I felt honoured, and, at the same time, extremely pleased. I felt proud that the Scotland the Yes Campaign wants to build is accepting of someone of my diverse background and character – and yet, I was hardly surprised at all.
I believe allowing people in my age group to vote in the referendum is a great move – let me explain why.
Teenager Ellie Koepplinger, who believes that an independent Scotland is the key to a "better, brighter and fairer" future for her generation has been appointed to Yes Scotland's advisory board.
The 16-year-old will sit alongside political "heavyweights" such as Dennis Canavan and Nicola Sturgeon, as well as actress Elaine C Smith and double Michelin starred chef Andrew Fairlie, to help oversee the campaign to deliver a Yes vote in next year's referendum.
