I was bullied at school over my appearance which had a real impact on my self-esteem.
I thought that if I was thinner, I would be more popular.
At the age of 16, I was diagnosed with anorexia. I’m a lot better now, but it a very dark time in my life.
With Fixers, I’m campaigning to show others in my shoes that there is more to life than looks.
I also hope it challenges society’s traditional views on beauty and makes people realise they’re fine the way they are.
I would like to thank Jordan Morris and Louise Waller for helping me with this Fix.
