I wasn't born into a wealthy family, and a lot of people told me that I wouldn't go very far because of my background.
I always wanted to prove them wrong, and so I set about starting my own clothing brand, English Pharaohs.
While there is support out there for people wanting to start up a company, it is hard for people from less fortunate backgrounds to access.
My fixers project aims to encourage young people with an idea to pursue it despite the hurdles that they may face, and not let anything hold them back.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
