I became depressed during my first year of college when I was doing badly in my A-level exams. I ended up dropping them and fell into a depression. I wasn't eating properly, going outside or feeling well.
I started creating things and that helped with the feelings of self-hatred. I'd create tags and tie them to my backpack when I went skateboarding. It opened up a conversation with other people.
When I was depressed someone smiling at me could help a lot, it inspired me to carry on and help other people, so that's a big part of my Fixers project.
I want to share the tags around Birmingham and I hope they will spread a message of positivity.
