Campaign: To encourage young people to follow their dreams

I was bullied at school, which made me feel alone. My confidence was low and I’d hate having to face the same people day after day.


It was only when I started learning magic that things began to turn around.


The bullying stopped and for the first time in my life, I felt unique and valued.  


I want to encourage young people to pursue their passions and not be afraid to aim high.


With Fixers, I hope to give them the confidence to follow their dreams and ambitions, without fear of failure.

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

Abbie Whitfield Bethany Dowdell
Chloe Brenan Connor McDermott
Dyllan Lemasonary Emily Fraser
