I was bullied a lot in school. I was into heavy metal music, wore piercings and colour in my hair.
People saw me as a freak and I was bullied because of this.
It was upsetting and I tried to fit in with everyone else, but it just wasn’t me.
My Fixers project is to encourage people to be themselves and celebrate who they are.
Everyone is special in their own way. We all need to look past the way someone looks and see them for who they really are.
This project was supported by The Tampon Tax Fund distributed by The Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
