Hi, I’m Ellie and I was diagnosed with epilepsy on my 18th birthday! As you can imagine it changed my life a bit, but I didn’t let it stop me for very long. I have attended drama school since I was 16 and am continuing to try and make the acting industry a more accessible and welcoming place for people with conditions such as epilepsy. I believe that no young person should have to pass up on their dream career because of a lack of knowledge outside of this community, which is why I am excited to be working with Young Epilepsy!
