Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Nottingham
Campaign: To encourage young people with disabilities to believe in themselves

I was born with cerebral palsy, which means my limbs are quite stiff and it decreases my mobility.

But I’ve never let anything hold me back in life. I went to university and am now pursuing a career in music.  


I want to encourage other young people with disabilities to have the same self-belief and ambitions.


It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, what’s important is what’s on the inside.


If you have a passion for something, you shouldn’t let anything stop you from achieving your goals.

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

 

Anna Unwin Bradley Smith
Ellie Searston Emma Knight
Georgia Patilla Jacob Seelochan
Joel Walker Kelly Pyatt
Kyle Kirk Michael Mardare
Olaolu Fisayo Sarah Redmille
Tinashe Darelara William Harrison
