Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Glasgow
Campaign: To encourage people to be more accepting of asylum seekers

I fled Nigeria ten years ago because I feared for my life and came to the UK aiming to make something of myself.

  

I was given a home at the Red Road flats, which have faced demolition for quite a while.

 

My community is home to many refugees - they've been through an awful lot in their lives and see this area as a lifeline.

With Fixers, I want to show how important this place is. I also want to encourage others to be more accepting of refugees and asylum seekers.

 

We're not bad people. We just want a life free from persecution.

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