Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Gateshead, Newcastle
Campaign: To challenge gender inequality in workplaces

I'm an apprentice welder. I love my work and I'm good at it, but I get negative comments when I tell people about my job.


People have said that I'm 'doing a man's job' or to 'get back in the kitchen', and it needs to stop. 


I made the film with Fixers because I want to encourage young people to follow whatever career path they want to, and not let gender stereotypes stop them. 

Tyne Met College supported me with this Fix.
