Location: Omagh, County Tyrone
Campaign: To end negative gender stereotyping

If often frustrates me when society puts restrictions on what jobs men and women can do.

 

My group and I believe that young people should pursue whatever career path they like, and not make decisions based on gender stereotypes.

 

Who is to say that a boy won't be a great hairdresser and a girl can't become a fantastic mechanic?

 

If you’re passionate about something, ignore what others say and follow your dreams.

 

With Fixers, we’re challenging negative stereotypes by creating a T-shirt campaign to promote gender equality.

 

Times have changed and I hope our campaign helps young people to understand that it’s okay to be different and do something they enjoy.     

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
