Shaniqua

Shaniqua

Name: Shaniqua Benjamin
Age: 23
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Croydon
Campaign: To encourage young people to speak up about issues that matter to them

It’s my view that many young people are labelled troublemakers who don’t have anything useful to offer society.

This can have a really damaging effect as it can make them feel marginalised and as though their voices aren’t being heard.

I think it’s important for others my age to be free to speak their minds, knowing that they will be listened to.

That’s why I want to show young people that they can use their voices in a positive way to bring about real change.

They just have to recognise their own potential and be willing to stand up for what they believe in.

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

 

Darnell Braithwaite

Lauren Wright

Randy Muhooli

Rhianna Benjamin

Sophia Burton

Make My Day Better

Make My Day Better is the charity arm of DialAFlight and the Lotus Group and supports a variety of projects around the world. Their guiding principle is that the majority of their funding must directly benefit people.

They are backing my campaign and working in partnership with Fixers to give others, like me, the chance to make a difference.
