Name: Janine Ling-Carr
Age: 27
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Campaign: To show how hyperkinetic disorder can be isolating

I have always found it hard to express my emotions and understand how other people are feeling, which caused many problems for me when I was younger.

 

I was badly bullied and got into fights because people got the wrong idea about me.  I also got into a lot of trouble with the police.

 

I was diagnosed with hyperkinetic disorder when I was 11.  It caused me a lot of difficulty when interacting with others but over the years I have learnt how to manage the condition without relying on medication.

 

Beatboxing helps me to express my emotions.  I love mimicking sounds I hear and experimenting with my voice.

 

I created 3D printed models of soundwaves created by different emotions such as crying, a laugh and a scream to exhibit in an art gallery. 

 

I am asking people to identify which is which, to illustrate how hard it is for me to decipher different emotions.

 

 

The following Fixers have helped me with this project:
