Lewis Hine - youth ambassador

Lewis was first recognised on his 16th birthday after posting a video on Facebook to describe his epilepsy. It attracted more than 30 million views, with the likes of Sir Elton John sending him messages of support.

Lewis has his own charity, Friend Finder. He got first involved with Young Epilepsy during National Epilepsy Week, 2017 where he was involved in the #ExplainEpilepsy campaign, fronted by Young Epilepsy, Epilepsy Society and high street giants River Island.
