Birmingham’s Leading Sickle Cell Ambassador
Jenica Leah is a self-published, award winning children’s author and a passionate advocate for sickle cell.
Living with sickle cell anaemia herself, she has battled with the many complications that come with the disorder; but she has never let this stop her from being who she is. From being a full-time model at the age of 14 to organising and managing catwalks with an international events specialist by the age of 20, Jenica Leah refuses to let her condition hold her back.
After undergoing total hip replacement surgery in 2014, which changed her whole outlook on life and her perception of her illness, Jenica Leah vowed to help others living with the sickle cell condition. By being more open about her health and her journey, and by doing more to create awareness and get people talking about it; Jenica Leah is now Birmingham’s leading ambassador for sickle cell.
With her drive, determination and love for life, Jenica Leah sees her possibilities as endless.
