Name: Ashley Carter
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Taunton, Somerset
Campaign: To stop children being bullied because they look different

I was born with Treacher Collins syndrome. It means I was born without any ears, a receding jaw and no cheek bones.


I’ve had more than thirty operations, some of them very painful.


But worse than that was the bullying I went through at primary and secondary school because of the way I look.


I don’t think the bullies knew how much their comments hurt me.


Fixers has helped me get my message across to the bullies – that they should think about what they say to people and stop their bullying behaviour.

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:
