I’m a British Muslim and although I’ve not experienced discrimination personally, I’ve seen the impact that Islamophobia has had on others in stories I've read in the news.
My group and I are currently studying at the Royal High School in Edinburgh, which is made up of students from all kinds of ethnic backgrounds.

Our Fixers campaign is to promote a culture of inclusion in schools.
Hopefully, we can encourage students to see past negative stereotypes and do more to find common ground between their peers.
