The university supported my Fixers project by allowing us to film at various locations around campus. Thank you to Events and Administrative Officer Katie Anderson for helping us.
My campaign was featured on the Facebook for Gingerbread, an organisation who provide advice and support to single parents. I received some comments on the post which can be read below:
'This is a lovely film! Well done.'
'We are all hardworking and dedicated to bringing up the next generation, no matter if you are a student, working or unemployed. It's good to raise awareness that we don't do this just to be on benefits, we do this because we love our children and we do the best we can.'
I also received an email from a young mother who left some really encouraging feedback about my campaign. She wrote:
'I just wanted to let you know how much I loved your video. I am a 22-year-old mother of two and I hate the stereotype I am tarred with. I never realised how lonely being a mum could be purely because you miss out on a lot of the things that older mums get to do as you are looked down upon. I think more young mums need to be recognised and people need to see that we are just the same - and more importantly so are our children.'
