I was diagnosed with NF1 at 11 weeks old, I have always been the type of person to adopt a positive attitude and to live my life to the fullest, despite the challenges that NF1 has given me. I live a very active life style, I sometimes have crazy ides, which I always try out.
Overcoming my many challenges proves to both others and myself that while I may have NF1. NF1 does not have me. I do not know what lies ahead of me in terms of my condition, but I do know that I'll always make the most of what life gives me. No one tells you life will be easy, but we can all make the best of what we do have. Supporting others with NF1 and Scoliosis has become a big part of my life and equally, I have been supported by many people I have met on my journey so far. People with NF1 tell me they feel isolated, but we do not have to allow this to happen. You are not alone and we can help each other.
What am I up to now?
I am still working hard and I have recently started my own business (KA Events),
where I provide photography for weddings and christenings to name but a few
(see the above link).
