TURNER SYNDROME TALK AND TEA TSSS UK PODCAST
WITH EMILY SEYMOUR
We are delighted to announce, due to the incredible success of “Turner Syndrome, Talk and Tea “podcast that Emily has been so inspirational in setting up. Emily has kindly agreed to continue it and develop it for the TSSS UK via our website and across our social media platforms. We are so excited so, watch this space for more information on how to take part, suggest topics for the future. Emily will continue to conduct the interviews and plan and develop the podcast. We hope it will reach a wider audience through the Society.
I am Emily Seymour and was diagnosed with Turners at 9 months old and think I was very fortunate to have had such an early diagnosis. I have been going to conference since I was about 14. Everyone always says it, but it really is such a special weekend, and I totally agree! I have done a few fundraisers for the society, one of them being swimming 100 lengths of a 25m pool - and I am currently in the middle of training for my next challenge, which is 200 lengths, which takes up a lot of my spare time! When not swimming and doing podcasts, I work in a care home for the elderly which I really love, and I have worked there since I was 18. The stories you get from the residents are second to none and the job is hard but very rewarding.
I am honoured to be one of your social media reps, I will try my hardest to be tech savvy - my podcast experience will hopefully help! 🙈
The society is so proud of Emily, and we were so impressed with all her hard work and professionalism. We invited Emily to join our social media committee. We are so excited to have Emily join us. She will work with us to help us to develop our social media across many platforms.
