Meet Elina! This young woman faces daily challenges that have made her look outside the box to create a social enterprise that will make a real difference to providing the resources so very much needed for those young people, like her self that are living with chronic and often ongoing degenerative illnesses . . . 

"Chronic illness and disabilities can make you feel invisible and incredibly isolated. It can break down your sense of self and confidence in your own body. It can turn your whole world upside down in a moment.

Our aim is to make you feel seen, heard and understood. That you matter and what you have to say matters. To feel supported and know there are others out there that understand what you're going through. To have access to helpful and adaptive tools and advice, to help you manage and feel more confident in day to day life. For you to feel represented and know that your presence makes a difference in the world. That your difference makes a difference"

How can you help to support this truly inspiring young entrepreneur support those that her business supports? Head to and buy a tshirt or a hoodie - ethically made and eco friendly, with designs that everyone, both abled-bodied and disabled can relate and connect to. 

Elina would love to hear from you if you have any queries - please email directly to 

At a time where most teenagers are exploring the world and their new found freedom so many teens and young adults are losing theirs to their illness/disability.

We are honoured to welcome Elina to the business community - it was fantastic to meet you last week, and we hope we can do so much more over time to support this enterprising young business woman!
