Young Epilepsy Ambassador

10th June 2016
We are very proud of Tia (11H) as she was requested by the ‘Young Epilepsy Organisation’ to be filmed for a video, which was shown as the introduction to this year’s ‘Champions Award’ ceremony which took place on Wednesday 18 May 2016. Tia and her mother were invited to the event at Shakespeare’s Globe. In the film Tia explains how she copes day to day with epilepsy - if you would like to take a look at the film please follow the added link:

Tia has taken part in a number of groups where teenagers with Epilepsy discuss what it is like to cope on a day to day basis with the condition. She has acted as a role model in school to younger students who gain confidence from Tia’s ability to talk about her experiences.
