ABOUT ME:
→ Hello! My name is Lucy and I was diagnosed with hemi-dystonia when I was 15 years-old (now I’m 30 years old). Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that causes involuntary muscle contractions and spasms which more often than not tend to be really painful due to the twisting and tightening of the muscles. I grew up in Guatemala City, Guatemala, the city of eternal spring, after my diagnosis I had to seek better medical treatment in the United States.

GOALS:
→ My goals with this channel is to help raise awareness and to help break the stigma that neurological disorders and diseases carry. I plan on incorporating health and wellness lifestyle videos as well as my everyday life incorporating my passion of makeup creation, and how I have essentially managed to live with Dystonia (also, please feel free to suggest any video ideas as well). I hope that I can help others with their own journey even if it’s just by sharing their stories, for me it would have meant a lot when I first got diagnosed seeing other people living with Dystonia.
