Everyone has their insecurities, but it’s my view that all women should feel confident in who they are.It was when I was diagnosed with an eating disorder two years ago that I realised how easy and ‘normal’ it had become for girls to be obsessed with their appearance.I find it worrying that people feel they aren’t good enough if they’re different.I’m now on the road to recovery and want to promote positive body image and help boost self-esteem among women.With Fixers, I want to spread this message as widely as possible, encouraging women to challenge conformity and celebrate what makes them unique.*NOTE: Fixers sometimes go beyond the 16-25 year age bracket while working on their Fix.

Lucy Wiles, Anna Chivers, Aoife Doyle, Tracy Foster, Kyra Sky-Foster and Trish Watson all support my project. They appeared in my Fixers film. Thanks also to Lauren Painter-Stainfield for supporting us on the day of the film shoot.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
