Location: Islington, London
Campaign: To tackle negative attitudes towards care leavers

I came to the UK when I was 13 as a child refugee after fleeing Afghanistan.

 

I was placed with a foster family from India.  My experience with them has been amazing.  I’ve learnt so much from them and they always encouraged me to be ambitious.  I am now studying for a degree in social work at Goldsmiths.

 

In the past when I told people that I came from a foster family, I received a negative reaction so I didn’t tell many people after that.

 

I want society to realise that everyone deserves a fair chance and shouldn’t be defined by the fact that they grew up in care.

Chloe Cockett from Become Charity supported me with this Fix.
