I’m a storyteller, advocate, entrepreneur and most importantly a Sickle Cell Warrior. I am told I’m not supposed to be here.
Diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease at birth, my life was scheduled to end at age of 8. It was only at the age of 23, that I reconciled with the answer of the question mark that was my life. I finally understood why I was always drawn to do the “impossible”. Living with chronic pain, constant anaemia and a less than perfect bill of health, I chose to learn Sickle Cell. With a new sense of understanding of myself, I have nurtured a deeper appreciation of Sickle Cell.
Everyday I understand why I am here.
