Campaign: To encourage young mums not to give up on their dreams

I had my son when I was just 16-years-old.


When I first found out I was pregnant, I felt mixed emotions. I didn’t know what I was going to do.


But I decided that having a child didn’t mean I needed to abandon my other hopes and dreams.


I studied hard and am now in full-time employment. I wanted to be able to provide for my son and I completed an exam just a week after he was born.


With Fixers, I want to show other young mums that their lives don’t end when they become pregnant. They don’t have to give up on their ambitions.


I hope to help others find the balance between achieving personal goals and being a good parent.

Jessica Ross and Katy Hutchings are helping me with this Fix.
