Name: Ellie
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: York
Campaign: To raise awareness about body stereotypes in dance.

I have danced since I was 2 years old and growing up I was always led to believe dancers should be thin. 

 

I hope my work with Fixers will encourage others to celebrate their bodies - no matter what size - especially within the dance industry. 

 

I succumbed to the pressures and began changing the way I ate and eating just made me feel guilty. 

 

I hope my campaign will raise awareness about the beauty of individuality! 

 

Thank you to these Fixers for helping me with my Fix!
