My name is Jennifer Manly. I’m 28 years old and was diagnosed with EDS in 2015.

I do freelance marketing and writing and I have a precious dog named Seven. I love reading, writing, podcasts, movies and fashion and I adore working out and Pilates/Yoga, when my body permits. I’m an independent spirit who has learned that friends and family are the most important thing. I’m obsessed with bettering myself, learning how to deal with life struggles and practicing self-love.

Having learned so much, my goal is to now help others, which is why I’m currently working on launching my blog, Serene Seven (coming soon). I admire those who smile through the tears, appreciate the smallest of things and who keep trying, even when it seems impossible.
