My mum passed away when I was 9 and in the end, I entered the care system.Grief made me angry and I didn’t know how to cope with my emotions so I found myself in trouble with the police.But by the time I was 17 or 18, I realised I needed to face my feelings and I began to regret my past decisions.Now I have a son and I couldn’t be happier. It’s this positivity and focus in my life that keeps me going.
With Fixers, I want to show other young people in care that they too can have a bright future, as long as they stay focussed and optimistic.Breaking the rules is never the answer.
Chantelle Thomas and Jo Harris are helping me with this Fix.
