My names Olivia I am 20 years old I have 3 types of seizures. I love to dance and being active, along side my epilepsy I have autism and a few other disabilities. I was diagnosed with epilepsy just after my 11th birthday. Having epilepsy has had a huge impact on my daily life since being diagnosed. I’ve not been able to be as independent as I used to in my childhood, but despite the odds I have never let epilepsy control me and I will always carry on with my day to day life. It has never held  me back from any of my passions. Since being diagnosed it has made me open my eyes to haw fragile life is and how short it can be, and I will always treasure every moment.
