Katrina did well at school, has worked hard throughout the pandemic and keeps herself fit with clubbercise.
She says: I have had congenital nystagmus all my life and I have never let it hold me back.
This is Katrina’s amazing nystagmus story
My name is Katrina, I am 22 years old, I attended mainstream school and college and have got a Level 2 Business and Tourism and a Level 2 and 3 IT qualifications.
For the past 2 and a half years I have worked on a number of contracts with Vision Express, for Carlisle City Council and in two different schools.
I also attend Clubbercise once a week in a local community centre and also Girl Power fitness classes. These have helped me keep normality in my life during the COVID pandemic.
I have had congenital nystagmus all my life and I have never let this hold me back, especially through school and college.
