Alannah Shesgreen, 3rd Law and Accounting student, provides an illuminating account of her life with Cystic Fibrosis in her article in the Irish Independent.
Alannah discusses how it impacts her daily life and how she does not let it define her. Alannah is currently on her cooperative education placement with a law firm. She is training for a marathon and is a patient ambassador for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland’s 65 Roses campaign.
Alannah writes: ‘On completing my Leaving Cert, I decided to study Law and Accounting at the University of Limerick. Despite getting chucked into St Vincent's Hospital in Dublin for weeks at a time each year since starting - most recently for three weeks in February - I have pushed myself to keep my grades up and I am on track to graduate with a First Class. But don't hold me to that!’.
