I've been cheerleading since I was 9-years-old and I love everything about it.
But what I'm fighting to change are the negative stereotypes that people associate with cheerleading. I feel it's not taken as seriously as it should be.
I'm 18 now and still get comments from people who think cheerleading is a bit of a joke, which is far from the truth.
You have to be very fit to do what we do and still have a smile on your face even when you're tired.
It's also great for keeping fit and something everyone should try out.
Working with Fixers, I want to raise the profile of cheerleading in this country and hopefully make people realise it’s a serious sport.
I want to give something back to cheerleading and make a change.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this campaign:
A special thanks to celebrity personal trainer, Craig Budgen, for providing his expertise in our TV news story and supporting our Fixers project.
Following my TV story being featured on ITV, the Lancashire Evening Post and the Manchester Gazette published a story about our Fixers project.
