People 1st have supported me throughout my project and helped me to get in touch with Fixers. Anna Maria McAlinney, Personal Development and Employability Tutor at People 1st, said this about my campaign:
'Alicja is a bright and amazing young woman. She is a living testament that people with a disability are capable of achieving brilliant things and as such should be treated with the same respect and dignity that everyone else receives. It is wonderful that FixersUK give young people, like Alicja, a forum to present a clear message on an issue that impacts so many young people today.'
My billboard received some great reviews from members of the public who saw it on display in Lisburn. You can read some of their comments below.
'I think this is a great idea to let everyone know about the situations disabled people face. It's amazing that someone could share this picture with society to make sure that the problems they face are not hidden. The billboard looks great and I think the message is perfect. Great job! We are all equal.'
'It was great to see Alicja's billboard up on the street near where I live. It's great and the result was a very positive and strong message.'
'Congratulations and well done! Keep up the good work!'
