Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Folkestone, Kent
Campaign: To encourage young people to work hard in school

At school I was a bit of a naughty boy. I didn’t take too well to being told what to do and I had a problem with authority. In the end I got excluded so many times, they kicked me out of school.

 

I realised too late how important education was. I ended up doing jobs that I didn’t enjoy because I didn’t have the qualifications to do jobs that I wanted to. 

 

I found success as a professional boxer – but it wasn’t always like that. 

 

Now I give motivational talks to groups of young people - I want them to learn from my mistakes.

 

My Fixers project is to inspire young kids to find something they are passionate about and do as well as they can in school.

The following people supported me with this Fix: 

 

Ali Skinner from CXK

Charlie Hoare

Danny Kennedy

George Hibberd

Jack Birkett

Lennon Robertson

Louie Hibberd 

Matar Sambou

Rocky Hutton
