Name: Fatema Begum
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Oldham, Manchester
Campaign: To encourage employers to give young people with no work experience a chance.

Since turning 16 I’ve applied for many jobs, but I’m always turned away because I don’t have any work experience yet.

 

I feel like it’s a Catch 22 situation – you can’t get a job without work experience, but you can’t get work experience without a job.

 

I hope my Fixers campaign will persuade employers to give young people like me a first chance, so we can show what we’re really capable of.
