The BBC Teen Hero Awards 2016

In 2016 I was nominated for the BBC Teen Hero Awards and was one of the winners of this award which recognises the work of young peoples work. I was recognised for my work creating the group blog Young People Chronic Illnesses on Instagram. It was an amazing achievement in a really dark time of my life.

I created this page to build a sense of community and purpose. I was able to advocate for myself and others by raising awareness and sharing peoples stories.

This post will include the video and photos from that event as documentation.

This video was taken by my admin Chloe who attended the event with me
I got to meet different celebrities like Clara Amfo and Jess Glynn

My admin and friend Chloe came with me alongside our mothers and we had a great time.
