Living her life with sickle cell anaemia Jenica Leah has battled with the many complications that come with the disorder; but she has never let this stop her from achieving greatness. 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.

In order to create and develop her award winning children’s book series ‘My Friend Jen’, Jenica Leah has done in depth research of the sickle cell condition to further her knowledge of what she already knows from living with it. Her vast understanding as well as her patient expertise has placed her second to none when it comes to discussing the topic of sickle cell and raising awareness.

The success of her children’s book then lead Jenica Leah to set up her own book publishing and coaching business to help new authors bring their stories to fruition. She works with first time authors taking them through the publishing process and also offers publishing packages for those wanting a less hands-on approach.

Jenica Leah has featured on BBC, TedxBrum, BuzzFeed News, AlJazeera, The Nursing Times as well as being key note speaker at conferences for NHS and NHS Blood and Transplant.
