Onyx

Name: Onyx Uwandulu
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Newbridge, Caerphilly, Wales
Campaign: To help boost self-esteem amongst teenage girls

I am passionate about dancing and it has really helped me gain confidence. I was a quiet child and was unsure of myself but getting in to dancing was very good for me. We all need to find what makes us feel good.

 

I started latin and ballroom dancing when I was about ten. I feel I've come a long way. Now street dance is my favourite. I teach regular dance classes and enjoy performing.

 

I am proud to call myself a feminist.  People don't understand it's all about equality, it's not about trying to be better than boys it's about trying to be equal on a political and social level.

 

I feel that as young girls we shouldn't worry so much about people judging us, we should be able to express ourselves and not constantly wonder in the back of our minds what people are going to say.
