See SWNS story SWPALSY; A teenager who has cerebral palsy has created a cartoon version of herself in an animation to help her classmates understand her condition. Tegan Vincent-Cooke, 14, believed a lack of awareness about the disability meant fellow pupils felt uncomfortable approaching her and were too shy to ask questions. She decided to turn the story into a video following her journey through life and detailing the feelings of isolation and anxiety she has had to deal with. After writing about her experiences, she enlisted the help of professional animators, a narrator and producer to bring her words to life in an animation.
