Annie recently won BAFTA Breakthrough Brit Award and has set out to make a difference to thousands of people, with her unique positive take on the world.
At 4 weeks old Annie suffered 3rd degree burns on her face, arms and hands, by being left in a burning caravan. She was given days to live. Despite that, she stayed in hospital for 2 years and survived. She then spent 7 years in foster care before being adopted into a family.
Even after constant lifesaving operations and painful trips to the hospital, Annie still loves life and feels incredibly lucky to be alive.
“It was my favourite talk of the day, it really stood out for me, and it’s the person inside who matters.
She was so natural and relaxed it felt like it was a one to one conversation.”
