In March 2015 I was taken into A&E with a life threatening illness - Subarachnoid Brain Hemorrhage. I was treated by The Salford Royal Hospital with 4 brain operations leading to a Shunt inside. This condition is 50% survival and the remaining have serious disabilities like hearing, unable to walk , partially paralyzed and brain damage.
I'm extremely lucky that I'm here today with little side effects, so now trying to do my best to give something back to be able to help others. I have created video blogs, do regular motivational talks at schools and for charity including the Royal College of Surgeons London. I am also Ambassador for 3 charities : The Brain and Spine Foundation Charity UK, The Bee Foundation USA & Sameyou.org that have all been a great support network for people and families like mine. This unfortunate situation has also given me focus and direction in my work - I was a VP in a multi-global fashion company & left to start my own eco- brands that help the environment and give back to the charities I support.

My illness has helped me to be able make a difference on how I now approach any situation.
