Campaign: Help for teachers to tackle bullying

I know what it's like to be bullied. Because I have gone through this experience and felt there wasn’t enough support whilst I was going through it, I want to make a resource to show teachers what it is like to be bullied and how they can help.

 

It's often hard for someone on the outside to spot the signs when someone is being bullied, so designing a website, which will give advice on how to deal with it, is a great idea.

 

I want to create something that can genuinely change things and the only way to do that is to give help to teachers who can step in and make something happen.

November 2014

As an #iwill Ambassador for the Step Up To Serve campaign, I took part in the first-ever Google+ Hangout with HRH Prince Charles.

 

I had a chance to speak to him about my Fixers campaign and share how youth social action has impacted my life, as well as my community.
