Daisy Poole

Hi, my name is Daisy and I'm a 17 year old catering student from Cheshire. I was first diagnosed with absent seizures at around 7 years old which, at the time seemed absolutely terrifying and completely life changing. I found out pretty quickly that it actually wasn’t, it was just another part of who I was/am. I received no medications or treatments till around 16 as they weren't having an impact on my life. In the past year or so, I started my medication journey as my epilepsy symptoms started to intensify. Then, I had the chance to become a part of an amazing organisation which would help me understand my condition  better whilst getting the opportunity to help others do that also.
