MS doesn’t stop me having the determination to succeed

Elham, 18, Egypt

My life changed a lot after being diagnosed with MS. I started to volunteer helping other people with MS, organising field trips and activities.

I started spending more and more time with a new group of people I met through volunteering. At 16 years old, I found my place. I realised I could give and be a part of something – it’s a new life. My life changed a lot, but I’m very happy.
