Joe

Joe

Name: Joe Watson
Age: 26
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Magherafelt, County Derry/Londonderry
Campaign: To encourage young people to speak out if they’re being bullied

I was bullied and it made me feel extremely low and worthless.

But just when I thought everything was becoming too much for me, I was presented with an opportunity to talk about what was happening and this gave me hope.

It was speaking with my late grandad that was the turning point. He encouraged me to stand up for myself and not to let the bullies win.

With Fixers, I’ve helped create a short radio play which is loosely based on the conversation I had with him when I was 14.

I hope it will inspire others, who are going through similar ordeals, to tell somebody. I want them to realise that it’s better not to suffer in silence.

* NOTE: Fixers sometimes go beyond the 16-25 year age bracket while working on their Fix.
