My name is Hannah Carter and I’m 26*-years-old.
When I was 17, my mum passed away after a four-year battle with cancer.
My life was thrown into the air at 100mph and I didn’t know how to cope.
I have now accepted that everyone grieves differently, in their own time, and that there is no final destination.
Now after tackling my grief head on, I am living life more positively. I can proudly say that I have turned my life around and I am ready to help others to do the same.
By creating a booklet with Fixers aimed at young adults dealing with grief, I hope I can show them that there are many ways to deal with bereavement and learn to cope.
We need to open up more about this difficult subject and I want to encourage young people not to push their grief aside. They need to know that it’s ok not to be ok.
*Some Fixers exceed the age range of 16 to 25 during the course of their project.
My project was supported by the Blagrave Trust.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
