Hi, my name is Jennylinford!

Hi everyone,
I am a first year learning disability student nurse studying at the University of Hull. I have seen a lot of discrimination and issues that I hope to one day help to prevent. I am just introducing myself and would love to meet like minded people and help in any way I can.
Hope to hear back soon.
