Jessica's campaign Vs School Stress – Rewrite the rules

I’m Jessica. All through school me and my friends were always being told that if we mess up in our exams, then we have messed up our futures. The pressure made me feel so stressed out all the time - I didn’t eat or sleep properly for ages and I felt so unhappy and desperate.

I’m campaigning to stop schools being just exam factories and for teachers to also help us to deal with all the stresses of growing up.
