Jennifer Gross

I was diagnosed with epilepsy last year after having three seizures and lots of headaches. My doctor was amazing and never gave up trying to accurately diagnose my condition. It felt so good to have the support of everybody around me and I want to encourage that for others. Becoming a Purple Day Ambassador increases epilepsy awareness for the people around me and through other ways such as social media. I’m just a regular teenager; I love to be with my friends and do regular things. There was a while when my epilepsy was preventing me from performing simple tasks in life. My parents were always worried and I was too. I am so grateful to be on medication that seems to be controlling my seizures.
