Chris

Name: Chris Harkin
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Larne, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Campaign: To show the benefits of an integrated education

The first time I noticed a difference between me and some of my classmates was at primary school.


Back then, I didn’t understand Catholic and Protestant, I just knew that when we did our first communion, only 6 or 7 pupils joined me.


I find it strange that in Northern Ireland many still harbour ill-will towards others just because they were raised in a certain way.


I now study at an integrated college and have gained a great understanding of different backgrounds and cultures as a result.


With Fixers, I want to show the benefits of this type of education.


My team and I believe that creating an environment of mutual respect from an early age is the key to bridging divides for future generations.
