I’m Eleanor (Elle) and I am 15 years old from Essex! I was born with a bilateral cleft lip. I like acting because I feel like I can be someone besides myself and this helps me a lot when I’m in a bad place. I like taking photos of nature and my little sister because I think she is beautiful. I think I am very creative so that is why I like English because I like to write stories and also poems. I like listening to other people’s problems because I can safely say that I have been through it all and love the satisfaction of helping other people through the hard times. I used to hate the way I look but now I embrace it, so what if I have scars? It makes me different. So what if I’m not perfect? It makes me,me.
