I was born when my mother was just a teenager, and my sister became a mum during her teens too.
We are therefore quite a young family. However, I do not think young people in my Bristol neighbourhood understand the effects teenage pregnancy can have on the life of the parent and the child.
Many people I know are expecting children, or have had children already. Becoming a young mum seems to be a cycle and many families follow this 'pattern'.
What I am aiming to do is show how tough life can be, and how starting a family so young may not be the best course.
What I hope to achieve is to inform people - to make them realise the implications of their actions, from the point of having safe sex to deciding to become a young parent.
Through a short film which follows the lives of two completely different characters, I hope young people will be able to realise the challenges younger parents have to contend with, making them think carefully about the decisions they make.
Here is a list of Fixers who helped with this Fix:
The group, which runs youth services and workshops to allow young people in Bristol to express what is important to them, supports my Fixers project.
Thanks to Diane Lukins, Lexi-Rose, and Kirstin Griffin for helping with my Fixers film. Diane played the mum in my Fixers film 'Two Minds', Lexi-Rose played the role of young girl, and Kirstin is an independent film maker who helped on the shoot day.
