As a young, single mother I know how challenging life can be.
It’s important to recognise that some young women make a choice to have a child, and that many find pregnancy and motherhood as rewarding an experience as older mothers do.
I'm so pleased that I'm able to run around and play with my son at the most important stages of his life.
My audio track aims to inspire others out there to keep strong and not let having a child hold them back in life.
Working with Fixers, I hope to inspire young mums so they start thinking more positively about their future rather than dwelling on the past.
It's about not looking back too much and being as strong as you can for your child.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
A special thanks to Femi, who is featured on my audio track, and thank you to Karen Lambert from Leicester Y, for appearing in my broadcast piece.
I was interviewed on BBC Radio Leicester with my Young People's Coordinator (YPC) Nithee. We talked about my Fixers project, and even had an opportunity to play my song on the station.
After my Fixers project was shown on ITV, the Leicester Mercury featured my Fix.
Below is some great feedback about my audio track 'Moving On':
Scott Henderson (RAW Radio) University of Warwick: 'Great story and song to get the message across about being a young mum to the younger generation. Music is a great way of spreading a positive message.'
Ed Stagg, BBC Radio Leicester: 'A really inspirational story, loved the song as well.'
