Year of the Fix: 2010
Location: Penrith
Campaign: To stop bullying

Most young people have a hard time at some point during their teens, but mine started as soon as I entered secondary school.

 

I was bullied.

 

Mainly this was bullying in the form of abusive names and taunts, but it got to a point where it became so bad that I developed a phobia of socialising with people and school itself.

 

I dropped out of school because of this bullying. But now I want to ensure that other young people do not go through what I went through with an animated film.

 

The film focuses on real stories from victims of bullying, and from an actual bully too. I wanted people to understand the effects bullying has, and ask the question - why do it?

I'd like to thank the following people for helping me with my Fix:

 

Chelsea Shepherd Tasha Ballard
Carrie Ann Ballard Chloe Rodham

 

Chloe Rodham Animation

A huge thank you to Chloe Rodham who designed the animation in my Fixers film and featured in my broadcast piece.
