Tell us about yourself
Hi, I’m Jessica, but you can call me Jess. I have Ehlers Danlos syndrome which is a connective tissue disorder. I have many interests but the main ones are musicals, photography and reading, though I’m pretty big on Netflix too. My favourite musicals are Hamilton, Kinky Boots and Newsies and my favourite thing to photograph is animals. I enjoy comedy or drama when watching tv/movies and I love reading, particularly Robyn Schneider and John Green’s books, or similar young adult books. 

How long have you been on LW for?
I’ve been part of Livewire for almost two years.

What does LW mean to you?
Livewire means I have a place I can be myself, not my illness. I can be who I am, and be proud of my achievements without judgement. I have made lasting friendships and developed the most amazing support network.
