Hello, I am Alex, I am 21 years old and from a little small place called Plymouth, UK. I got diagnosed with epilepsy early this year after a number of seizures and it has been a massive change in every aspect of my life as it’s something I never knew I had or didn’t fully understand completely. However, after research and understanding of my diagnosis. I am now turning my disability into my own ability through acceptance which allowed me to have a much stronger will and self-drive to not allow my epilepsy to hold me back from anything I set my mind to.
I am proud to represent PurpleDay EveryDay as an Ambassador to share my help and wisdom to anyone suffering in silence with no understanding of this condition and/or people who understand the condition with it directly affecting them or someone they love.
Age Diagnosed: 21
