Name: Emilia Ashton
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Rotherham, South Yorkshire
Campaign: To challenge Rotherham's bad reputation

I’ve lived in Rotherham my whole life and I love it. There’s a close-knit community, it’s friendly and there’s plenty to do. 

 

There has been a lot of negative press about Rotherham and every time the area is brought up in the media it seems to be because of something bad.

 

We’re young people and we’re proud to be from here. We've made a film with Fixers to show the reasons why. There are a lot of good sides to living here - it’s not just what people see in the news. 

 

We want to show other young people in Rotherham that they can be proud of where they are from – we’re the next generation and we’re happy to be here and make a difference. 

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix: 

 

Sally Hyslop
