There is a real problem with crime and drugs in Bradford, and we need to inspire young people to concentrate on their education.
Despite where I was brought up, I still managed to get my A-levels and go to university.
I want to do this project with Fixers– not to say ‘look at me, look how well I’m doing’ – but to show that I’m from a disadvantaged background too, and I’ve been able to make something of myself by concentrating on my education.
I want to see more people from Bradford do the same and not end up being another statistic.
I want to change the way they view their education.
They should see it as an opportunity to better themselves – which in turn will build confidence and help them to reach goals and achieve their dreams.
