My name is Emma and I was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 15. On this council, I hope to raise awareness about this condition, as many have very minimal knowledge of it. I’ve decided to go to medical school to become a Pediatric Neurologist, and this will be a great start as a mentor to others. I want to plan and participate in events to raise money for epilepsy research in the hopes to find a cure. Most of all, I want other children and teens with epilepsy to know that they do not stand alone.
