Me & My Shadow

The Me & My Shadow scheme gives women with epilepsy the opportunity to "shadow" for a day leading figures from media, politics, charities, sport, health and business. Through the scheme we hope to build confidence and ambition in women with epilepsy and encourage them to think big.

The current scheme is aimed at women between 18 and 35, but we do hope to expand to other ages and genders in the future.

And what a collection of shadows we have lined up! From globally renowned social media companies, to national broadcasters and from world-leading scientists to senior MPs, we have them all.

Below you can read a selection of personal stories from the young women who have taken part in the scheme.
