The other care leavers featured in my Fixers film enjoyed their experience working on the project and had some really positive things to say:
'I thought it was brilliant!'
'I really enjoyed filming with everyone. It was great fun and enlightening to know that other people feel the same way as I do about leaving care. I feel inspired and I'm looking forward to showing it to my local authority with the aim of inspiring others.'
'Oh my god it's amazing and I love it. Thank you for letting us participate in it!'
'Thank you for giving us the chance to be a part of this.'
Members of the public have also left encouraging feedback in regards to my film, some of which you can read below.
'What an amazing video, talk about taking a lead! Wonderful.'
'A positive message, what a refreshing change! Well done!'
'A great little video which says so much more than all the thousands of reports written every week by well-intentioned professionals. Well done to everyone involved in the making of this video.'
'Such a powerful and emotive film. I really liked the way the negative perceptions were challenged and it ended so positively. Well done to all involved, you are an inspiration to all young people.'
'I love this video because this is what I have always believed regardless of all the negatives.'
After my broadcast story appeared on ITV News, here's what TCAC Edinburgh had to say:
'What an inspiring short film. Celebrating positive achievements of care leavers and challenging negative stereotypes. We know how amazing you all are.'
