I was seven years old when I first went into care.
I've noticed that people tend to assume that if you’ve been in care it’s your fault.
There’s a stigma and misconception surrounding young people brought up in the care system.
If you do something wrong or behave badly, it’s seen as a direct result of you being a looked-after kid.
With Fixers help I’m challenging the negative perceptions of young people in care.
I want to show that young people in the care system shouldn’t be judged and should be treated well.
