Creator of SAFER
Hi! My name is Hannah Gettman, and I have a peanut and tree-nut allergy. I currently live in Southeastern Minnesota, but I will be moving to Abu Dhabi in August. In 2017, I started Students Against Food Environmental Risks (SAFER) to connect with others who have food allergies and to share my experiences.
Hi! My name is Jiya! I started a non-profit/advocate organization called @foodallergyyouth to help raise awareness about food allergies within teens and young adults. I also created a website that launched a few months ago and it provides teens important food allergy information as well as a glimpse of personal experiences through the blog.
Hi! My name is Jackie and I'm from Sydney, Australia. I am 25 years old and was first diagnosed with a food allergy at 13. Since then, I have been through high school, studied at university, backpacked across Europe, and eaten out loads with family and friends. I love drawing awareness of food allergy and allergic diseases.
Hi! My name is Grace and I have been anaphylactic to peanuts, tree nuts, and dairy my entire life. I strongly believe that our allergies should not hold us back from pursuing our dreams and I am so excited to be part of the Alan community to help inspire others to not let their allergies stop them from taking part in life!
Hi, I'm Thalina Houghton, 16 years of age and I am from the UK 🇬🇧 and I won't bore you with my extensive list of allergies but it ranges from environmental to food to exercise-induced and idiopathic anaphylaxis. I started 'Allergies In Bold' back end of 2019 but launched my website end of April 2020 and I am so pleased with the response!
