Location: Wrexham
Campaign: To dispel misonceptions of the traveller community

I come from an Irish traveller family.

 

I’ve lived in a static caravan on private land in Wrexham with my mum, two brothers and sister all my life.

 

I’m not a traditional traveller - I want a career and I want to learn – just like other people my age.

 

I’m fed up of being stereotyped and called horrible names like ‘thief’ or ‘scrounger’ – we’re not all bad.

 

With Fixers I want to raise awareness about the community, which is in fact hard working and has strong family values.

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

 

Dave Rippon

Caitlin Davies

Lee Roberts

Kirsty Roberts

Courtney Lloyd

Linsey Sides

Meghan Rooney

Emma Goodwin

Shannon Dean

Chelsea Harris

Chloe Dodd

Jordan Evans

 

 

 

Yale College, Wrexham

The college helped to facilitate the project.
