With Fixers, Anita has helped to create a short, animated film that describes various types of bullying and explains what to do if you or someone you know is being bullied.
Anita says she was fortunate to have the support of her school, family and close friends. She received the help she needed and now wants the same for others.

‘It took eighteen months of counselling for me to get back to my old self. I used a negative experience to develop into a stronger and better new self,’ Anita says.
‘I think the animation is brilliant and I’m grateful to Fixers for helping me create such a fantastic resource.’
Anita hopes to launch her film during a TEDx talk in County Tyrone in November. She also plans to show it in schools so that pupils and their parents can better understand what a child may be going through.
‘I chose to take a stand against bullies,’ Anita adds.
