Name: Charmaine Phillips
Age: 25
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Brixton, London
Campaign: Success After Care

I had good and bad experiences growing up in care. I want to challenge the negative portrayal of care leavers and show that being in care doesn’t have to limit you.

The stereotype tends to be that children in care are likely to be troublemakers, when actually they can still go onto be successful like anyone else.

 

I'm a management consultant in IT, so I'm proof that gorwing up in care doesn't have to limit you.

I have created a film showing others in care that they don’t have to succumb to the stereotype of what other people may think you are capable of.
