Shaverne

Shaverne

Name: Shaverne Farrell
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2013
Location: Uxbridge, West London
Campaign: To encourage young people to be confident in who they are

When I was younger, I used to be quite shy and sensitive to things. Sometimes I would cry if I heard bad things said about me or something bad happened. I was quite withdrawn and would feel left out.

 

Then as I got older, I began to come out of my shell. Now I'm past my shyness, but I think a lot of people in school - especially those who feel as if they are different from everyone else - are still hiding away in the shadows.

 

So with Fixers, I've decided to hold an event in my area to bring young people together to showcase their talents.  

I hope this will help them gain confidence, and raise their self-esteem. Everyone is different and can do different things, and that is what makes everyone so interesting and individual. It's time to highlight who we are.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

Dominik Kochta
Micah Pollard
Dashana McArthur
Zjavica Carty
Dwaynica Greaves
Ismael Musoke

The team at Platform supported my Fixers project. I was able to hold my event at the venue free of charge.
