    Ashley Clarke's bio: I am 28 years old and Huntington's first entered my life when i was around 14 years old, with the positive diagnosis of my dad. From the age of 17, i cared for my dad alongside my brother, attended school/ university, worked part-time and got involved with my local HD community. I was a volunteer, service user and board member over the years here in Northern Ireland. In 2016 i started the #Imnotdrunk Lifestyle Blog to raise awareness of Huntington's and share my story with the world. In 2018 i graduated from University and got to celebrate the day with my dad at his nursing home with a special party. This year (2021) i have signed a new contract to continue my work of 2 years with the Huntingtons Disease Association Northern Ireland. I have spent the past 10+ years living a life affected by Huntington's Disease, and it has made me the person i am today. I have friends around the world, attended many Huntingtons events, spoke publicly and turned Huntington's into a career i love!  Please
