Name: Carys Hill
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Dudley, West Midlands
Campaign: To promote positive ideas of body image

Young people can feel under pressure to look a certain way. 

This may be because they’ve been influenced by the media – seeing models and celebrities on TV and in magazines.

My team and I want to help promote positive perceptions of body image.  We think our peers should be able to feel confident in their own skin.

With Fixers, we’re planning a campaign to show that everyone is beautiful and to encourage others not to attempt to cover up who they really are.

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

 

Chloe Tomalin Georgia Round
Star Southall Heather Butler
Zainab Zafar Freya Cox
Nadia Hathway Nimra Khayal
Ryan Owen Rhys Khan

Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council
The council's youth and community team for the Stourbridge area have supported our project. It was one of their youth workers that first contacted Fixers on our behalf and has helped us keep in touch.
