Age Diagnosed: 10

I believe I would make a great ambassador as there are very few people in Costa Rica that actually create awareness on what epilepsy is and the effects it has on people in a psychological manner. I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 10 years old and as an epileptic I’ve had many obstacles in my daily life because of the limits my epilepsy imposed against me. I feel like I am well prepared to give emotional support as well as informing people about epilepsy through my personal experiences and the fact that I am very informed regarding everything that has to do with epilepsy.
