I got into a lot of trouble at school – drinking, fighting, and hanging around with the wrong crowd.
Eventually I was kicked out, before I got to take any GCSEs.
I realised I needed to turn my life around, and start using it for good.
I’ve thrown myself into charity work, and I’ve now raised more than £15,000. This has mainly gone to help children with cancer.
I see a lot of other young people hanging around on streets and getting up to no good.
I want to encourage them to get into charity work – it gives you purpose in life and makes a difference to others less fortunate than you.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
