I’m a British Muslim and although I’ve not experienced discrimination personally, I’ve seen the impact that Islamophobia has had on others in stories I've read in the news.
My group and I are currently studying at the Royal High School in Edinburgh, which is made up of students from all kinds of ethnic backgrounds.
I think part of the reason why it doesn’t seem to be a problem for us, is because we’ve had the opportunity to learn about each other’s cultures.
Our Fixers campaign is to promote a culture of inclusion in schools.
Hopefully, we can encourage students to see past negative stereotypes and do more to find common ground between their peers.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
