The first thing I would like to say is… Wow! Just wow about all the truly amazing people that I was so privileged to meet yesterday (Friday 27th April 2018) at the Ms Society Awards.
Hey everyone, how are you all doing?! As always leave me a comment below and I’d love to connect with you ☺️
Let’s to back to the middle of March 2018, I’d just got home from an Aldi food shop with mum when I received an email from the MS Society congratulating me on my nomination for the awards and then continuing by saying that I had been shortlisted as a finalist!
My first thought…. “What!?!?!” “Okay, it’s a spam, or a joke right?!” I sat down with my mum and read it properly. We were both overwhelmed with excitement! Just wow!
I would travel to The County Hall London to attend an awards ceremony celebrating the fantastic work people do for the MS Society, all charitable.
The awards included, Inspiration Award of the year, Young Carer, Campaigner, Employer of the year, Digital media (my category) and many more.
Mum and I decided to stay over in London on the Friday to make it an experience and have a little adventure on Saturday.
We booked a stay at The Park Plaza hotel County Hall, we had a beautiful room that overlooked the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. We didn’t actually close the curtains all night as it was just so beautiful!
Once we’d got prepared and ready for the awards, we headed out (not before having a little pic beforehand 🙂🧡
When we arrived…
What can I say.. everyone that we met and engaged with were the loveliest people I’d ever met! The atmosphere was electric and just full of love and joy. I met to team of Digital Media and Content, which for me was such an honour.
What I do on here and my YouTube channel and just basically talking about MS is something I am so passionate about, spreading awareness about MS, talking about to everyone and connecting with people to tell THE TRUTH about MS is something I want and will pursue. I always try and remain positive and I love being positive, however people who don’t understand or know about MS need to be aware of the truth behind the illness too… MS doesn’t have me, however I am mindful and I listen to my body and that enables me to live life the way I’d like to. 🙂
I met the gorgeous Frances who nominated me, I literally threw my arms around her! I was just so delighted and grateful. Followed by Chris and Liz who are also part of the team, such lovely people and we all had such a laugh.
The awards themselves were just magical is how I would describe them. I’ve never seen so many wonderful, courages, talented, inspiring people in one room. All of their stories moved me and I believe we are all champions/winners for doing what we do for MS.
The other people in my category was hilarious and lovely. It was amazing to chat to them and find out more on what they do.
I was beyond excited to meet the fab Scott Mills during our afternoon. He again was hilarious and having a selfie was definitely a highlight!
And presenting my awards… Jane Felstead (known for being in Made In Chelsea) I was dying to meet her all afternoon and when I realised she was handing out the award I was beside myself! We had such a wonderful chat and she’s such a wonderful person, it was great to meet her.
Overall the MS Society Awards were just THE best event I’ve ever attended.. if we could all gather up in one room every weekend I’d definitely be there.
It just goes to show, there are positives in MS… It brings people together in unity and that.. for me is the biggest positive out there!
I hope and pray one day our paths cross again!
Now… Here are some pics 😂🧡🤗
All my love always,
