I want to work with you!

Speaking and advocacy

It is my dream to make a positive difference in the world. I am already doing this through my blog by sharing personal stories of what it's like to live with my chronic illness - ichthyosis. But my ultimate goal is to share my stories in person so that I can have a more instant impact. I want to break down the prejudices towards people with visibly different appearances. And to give such people the confidence and pride to hold their head up high and smile.

I have had over two years experience mentoring young people with chronic illnesses, and am about to work with a university reviewing an online program for people with facial differences.

Ultimately, I'd love to establish a company similar to the UK's Changing Faces. To establish this, I want to start speaking at schools and organisations for young people, teaching them about the importance of diversity, disability and acceptance. To promote positive body image. And to make young people think twice about judging someone on their looks or disability alone. I believe if we start changing young peoples' minds, we can change the world. 

I am an accomplished speaker and budding TV presenter, and want to speak at YOUR organisation. Contact me if you are interested. 

Writing
I am looking to increase my freelance writing portfolio - I'd love to write for more media outlets - print and online.

If you would like me to write for you, please contact me to discuss the opportunity. You can view some of my best work here.

I also hope one day to turn some of my best writing into a book, detailing my experiences living with ichthyosis. 

Advertising and sponsorship

I am happy to display advertising on my blog. My blog averages around 25000 unique hits a month, and has over 400 Google followers. I also have over 1700 Twitter followers and my blog's Facebook page has over 550 fans. My blog is wide reaching - my blog reaches stay at home mums, people with ichthyosis and their parents, the chronic illness and disability community, and fashion and food lovers.

I am going to the BlogHer conference in New York in August 2012. I hope to seek sponsorship for this trip, and so I can work with you to promote your company in the best way possible.

Please contact me for my media kit and to discuss advertising and sponsorship.
