I have been cheerleading since I was 18-years-old, and soon after I began I started my own cheerleading squads.
Women are underrepresented in sport, and the aim of my group was to get other young women interested in keeping fit, working as a team, and just socialising.
I think a lot of young women are not encouraged to keep up sport, and normally this is because they become very self-conscious, busy with education, or interested in other things.
Also it is hard for women to be involved in sport because it’s usually men who are expected to continue with it.
I hope that through a poster campaign, the group of cheerleaders and I can show young women that not only is sport good for fitness, but it’s good for your self-confidence, and gets you socialising with lots of new people.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
