Katerini: decided in 2014 to do more with her life after spending years learning how to control the effects of having bipolar disorder. First by joining Bolton speaking club and gaining the confidence to engage an audience, make them laugh and at times cry. In 2015 she won her first ever speaking competition.
Second by volunteering at a mental health charity in Bolton and has served as their in-house speaker for over a year, telling her story of living with bipolar.
