The poem is about changing stereotypes and highlighting mental health. It’s about the responsibility of growing into adult told through the story of a character we created called Sam. I love the poem its full of emotion.

I am excited that we are taking a step forward and building momentum towards our film shoot. I think our project can have a big impact. Hopefully it makes people think twice about the way they treat care leavers. I want it to shine a positive light on young people in care and change stereotypes so people don’t see care leavers and think they are not going to succeed in life.

Its exciting to be part of Mediale because it is the first ever one and that is cool.

I would love to have a panel debate at the launch, I have strong point of view and I aim to get them across. I think its important we have a voice.
