Hello world! I’m Louise - an epilepsy, and recently, mental health advocate. Now 24, I was diagnosed at 17 with both generalised seizures, myoclonic seizures and absences, alongside photosensitive epilepsy and non-epileptic seizure attacks. I felt so alone in my battle. I created my YouTube channel to let other warriors know to embrace our condition! Creating positive videos allows my community to take a minute of their day to smile and laugh. It’s been a long journey and facing new battles, and I couldn’t be more grateful to share this with you. It's an honour to return as a 2017 nominee after being 2016's YouTube winner! Let's continue to raise awareness and end the stigma together.
Louise has the most uplifting approach to living with mental health qualities. Her determination for helping others no matter what Louise is going through herself, is worthy of all kinds of recognition and prestige. Louise's positive spirit towards life and what life brings instills confidence in everyone and working with/knowing her is an honour. — Benji
