Cece Alexandra

Epilepsy and Mental Health Campaigner

I was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2014, at the age of 27, however I suffered seizure since childhood and all the way through my adolescence and early adulthood, without a diagnosis . I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2016 at the age of 29, however I suffered and struggled throughout my childhood and early adulthood. I lost my job because of my Epilepsy. I was bullied because of my disability and also because of the colour of my skin, and now can no longer work because of ill-health. However, I am now studying an MSc in Mental Health Psychology part time, while volunteering with Epilepsy Action to raise awareness for Epilepsy.
