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.
