I was born in 1985 and I have nephropathic cystinosis. Thanks to the development of cysteamine therapy in the 80s I did not have my kidney transplant until 2009, which I received from my mum. I obtained a BSc degree in psychology in 2007 and since then have pursued a career in mental health. I have previously worked in the NHS as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner as part of a talking therapies service. In 2016 I left the NHS and started a new role as a mental health advisor working in student support services at the University of Central Lancashire.
