Project Description

Ross Macpherson

Age 17, Scotland

At the age of nine, I started origami as a way of coping with my Tourette Syndrome. Later, I began selling my work to raise money for Tourette Scotland, and have donated a four-figure sum so far.

I enjoy sharing my skills and have run an origami club in my senior school, as well as workshops in local primary schools, for the Boys’ Brigade and at a special needs club.

I’m heading to Dundee University in September to study Art. While there, I will continue raising awareness of Tourette Syndrome and also hope to train professionals through Tourette Scotland.
