People's reactions to my film have been fantastic. You can read some of this positive feedback below:
Penny West, Worcestershire Health and Care Trust
'The event helped to showcase the skills young people have and offered an opportunity for effective networking. I would consider offering work experience, apprenticeships in business admin and health and social care to some of these young people.'
David Green, Job Centre Plus
'The event was professionally delivered and has a strong positive message. As I work with some of the young people here I have seen what they are capable of achieving.'
I was invited to attend a special employee event at Sanctuary Housing’s headquarters in Worcester on Monday 24th June, where Sanctuary staff members were able to meet Fixers.
I presented my Fixers project and film (click here to watch) to an audience of 30 staff members, including some senior management as well.
During my presentation, I spoke about my dream of owning my own restaurant one day, but first wanting some experience in the catering industry.
After hearing this, Sanctuary’s Group Head of Community Investment and Sustainability, Sophie Atkinson, asked someone from Sanctuary’s catering department to come along and meet me.
They have now offered me a job interview for a position in the catering department!
My Fix was featured in the Worcester Standard and Worcester News.
I was interviewed by The Voice newspaper, the student newspaper for the University of Worcester. You can read the full interview here.
