Name: Arron Sweeney
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Stirling, Scotland
Campaign: To urge young people not to share things on social media that could hurt others

My team and I are concerned about the way some people our age use social media.

They can be negative and may share comments about someone’s physical appearance or behaviour with no consideration for how it might make that person feel.


Cyberbullying may not be immediately recognisable, but it’s important to think twice before hitting send on a post that could do more harm than good.


We want young people to think more carefully about what they share online.
