Tell us about the artwork.

It's about why Gypsy culture is not taught in schools - teachers at school don't really understand about Gypsy life and their way of living.

What inspired you to make your artwork?

It was a question that I asked my mum. Every other culture and religion is taught in school.

What action would you like people to take to make the world better for girls and non-binary young people today?

Treat everyone the same. Or as you would like to be treated.

This artwork is part of WOWsers: A Creative Explosion, an exhibition supported by BBC Children In Need's impact programme focused on children’s mental health, A Million & Me.
