When I was a kid I dreamed of being a specialist mechanic.
But as soon as I left school at 16, I got a reality check.
I had to get a job quickly to pay the bills and survive.
I've worked a lot in retail and I am currently working in a care home, but am keen to fulfill my new career ambition of becoming a support worker for young people.
I made a film with Fixers to urge people my age not to lose sight of what they would really like to do with their lives.
My project has been supported by The Blagrave Trust.
