Hannah started her blog ‘Hannah’s Hope’ in 2018. It is a disability and lifestyle blog, with the aim of sharing experiences, supporting and reaching out to others and making a positive impact in the world.

Hannah was well and able-bodied until a sporting injury at the age of 14. She developed complex regional pain syndrome and many secondary complications, including dystonia, osteoporosis and spasms/functional neurological disorder. She has suffered a spiral fracture of the hip and femur, which has since lead to further complications. Hannah has also been diagnosed with hypermobility syndrome. 

Hannah is an ambassador for White Lodge and does speeches and workshops at schools, Guides and Scouts, raising awareness of disability and White Lodge. In her spare time Hannah also raises money for Starlight Children’s Foundation, by making handmade cards. She has done a TEDX talk-Values in Life, is involved with the charity Scope and is passionate about making a difference, changing perceptions and promoting equality.
