Name: Sam Jackson
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2013
Location: Allerdale
Campaign: Broadening Horizons

I want to encourage young people to broaden their horizons and aim higher in life. I feel like a lot of young people are disheartened and feel daunted about going into the world of employment.

 

They’re not reaching their full potential. I want to get young people to really think about their dreams for the future and achieve their goals.

 

My Fixers project is about letting young people in the area know there are things out there for them to do.

 

I have ambitions. I don't always achieve mine, but I make sure I try.
