Share your story

Hey, I am 17 and I am a teen with epilepsy living in New Jersey and I'm creating a video about the awareness of teens with epilepsy (daily life, extra curriculars, schooling) for a Girl Scout project that will be put into the junior health curriculum at my high school. It involves sharing your own experiences with epilepsy and how it has/ has not impacted you. The curriculum will involve a video documenting teens with epilepsy (kinda like a sit down interview) and it will also include first aid, so how to help someone having a seizure in public. So if you are a teen with epilepsy who would be interested and comfortable in sharing your story you can contact me. Thanks!


Hope things go well with you
