Amy's story

At 23, I suddenly acquired a neurological condition. Overnight my life changed from that of a driven and active PhD student to someone who was unable to walk and needed to sleep for up to 20 hours a day. 
 
Two years later, struggling to know how to return to the world of work, I applied for Leonard Cheshire’s Change 100 programme. 

My internship showed me that employers can and will be flexible, and that I could make a positive contribution to a workplace. I’m now in a job that I love and I feel that I have a future. In short: Change 100 changed my life!
