I was devastated when my friends first pointed out that I was losing my hair. I was only 16 and still at school.
I couldn’t stop thinking about it and I assumed that I was going to go bald very quickly.
Young people today are obsessed with their body image. Social media is constantly bombarding us with unrealistic ideals of how we should look.
It was only after I finally talked to a friend about how depressed I was feeling, that I got some perspective about losing my hair.
There are so many worse things that can happen and I now realise that it’s not about what we look like on the outside, it's what's on the inside that counts.
I have made a poster with Fixers to inspire young men to be confident whatever their shape or size.
