Name: Damon Cooper
Age: 23
Year of the Fix: 2013
Location: Leeds
Campaign: Asperger's Syndrome and Employment

Living with Asperger’s can get hard at times. But what hurts the most is being judged for something that I can’t help.

 

I’m an aspiring writer and feel, because of my condition, employers shy away from hiring others like me.

 

I want to create a blog with the help of Fixers which will hopefully make employers see past my Asperger’s.

 

I have struggled to find work but my dream is to become a music journalist.

 

Hopefully teaming up with Fixers will allow me to do something I’m really passionate about and open the way for others who are in my shoes.

August 2013
My Fixers blog, which showcases my skills and will include music reviews, has been launched. Click here to check it out.

 

July 2013

I interviewed radio DJ Darryl Morris at The Hits Radio station in Manchester for my Fixers blog.

 

It went really well and it was really interesting to hear how Darryl got started and what he likes about the job.
