Psychology student | Life as a Cerebral Palsy student blog | CP Teens UK Assistant Coordinator
I am currently 19 years old, studying Psychology & Child Development at university. At the age of 15 years old I got into blogging and created 'Life as a Cerebral Palsy Student'. I have mild Cerebral Palsy which affects the left side of my body as a result of being born 8 weeks early and weighing 3lb 3oz, as well as having seizures, chronic pain and impaired vision. I have found that blogging about my own experiences and raising disability awareness is a big part of my life that I throughly enjoy.
As my blog has progressed over the years I have loved the chance to get involved with other organisations and expand the audience of my work. One of the organisations that I work very closely with is called CP Teens UK, who are a charity for young people with Cerebral Palsy or a similar physical disability. Last year I was fortunate enough to become their Assistant Coordinator and Ambassador Programme Lead.
