I’ve always been quite a shy person and never really felt comfortable talking to people I didn’t know.
However, doing work experience for eight months as a shop assistant helped bring out my confidence and made me feel self-assured.
I don’t think enough young people are aware of the benefits of volunteering and how it can help later on in life.
With Fixers I have helped create a short film looking at my time as a voluntary member of staff.
Hopefully it will inspire more people in my age to take up unpaid work and gain valuable skills in the process.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
