Welcome to Rollin Funky
My name is Clara and I live in London, United Kingdom.
I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a form of Hypermobility Syndrome (HMS), which is an inherited connective tissue disorder. It’s a very painful condition and I have been a full-time wheelchair user for over 16 years. However, I am more than my pain and my wheelchair. I am a woman with dreams, aspirations, and desires just like the next person. This is the reason I decided to create this little space to share my experiences, passions and to inspire others, while I am ‘Rollin Funky’ through life.
So, now you know a little about my health conditions, let me tell you more about who I am. I’m a fashion model and recently started doing public speaking events, as I am very passionate about self-love, body positivity and for there to be a more diverse representation of all bodies within the fashion and beauty industry.
I was a vegetarian for 17 years, before I became a gluten-free vegan nearly 7 years ago. I have a healthy-ish lifestyle, which includes fitness. I have a passion for fashion and love to travel to different places. I am not much of a repeat traveller (except to Jamaica which is the home of my family heritage) as I like to go to different places. I am very adventurous and like to experience new things - some may say I am a bit wild, but I just love to live life to the fullest the best that I can.
