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.
