I was born in Germany because my dad was in the army, which meant we had to move around a lot.
As soon as I'd mention my German heritage, people would ask me 'does that mean you're a Nazi?' They would always jump to a stereotype.
I think people hang onto stereotypes more than they should because whenever we hear about a country we generally think of something negative from there.
Our Fixers project is to try and bring everyone together through a cultural festival.
I think something like this is needed and will be like a breath of fresh air in my area.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
