Since turning 16 I’ve applied for many jobs, but I’m always turned away because I don’t have any work experience yet.
I feel like it’s a Catch 22 situation – you can’t get a job without work experience, but you can’t get work experience without a job.
I hope my Fixers campaign will persuade employers to give young people like me a first chance, so we can show what we’re really capable of.
The following Fixers helped me with my Fix:
Vanda Silva Jalo
Sarah Manchester Ward
Shah Fahim Ahmed
I would like to thank Tom Nutland from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills and Lorraine Davies from Fizz Fashion for giving an interview for my Fixers film.
