Campaign: To show young offenders that crime isn’t the answer

When I was a teenager I was always in and out of trouble with the police and spent a few months in prison.

 

In about  four years I ended up getting 13 convictions for 20 offences - most of which were petty crimes.

 

When I came out of jail, I had a choice between a life of crime or the chance to turn my life around - I chose the latter.

 

I’ve managed to stay out of trouble for three years now and one of the reasons for this is my love for music.

 

With Fixers I have produced a music video to tell my story.

 

I want other offenders to realise that crime is not the answer.
