Inspirational ME sufferer chooses a career with animals after 7 years raising money £8000 for charity and two years learning via a robot at school

Makayla Nunn, aged 16, from Priory Community School Academy, has inspired tens of thousands of people globally with her story of coping with ME since the age of 8.

She has raised £8000 for charity and is being taught via robot ‘Daz’ at PCSA.

Now in her last year at Priory, she is planning to study Animal Management at Weston College from next September, starting a career working with dogs or horses.

The amazing student has also won hundreds of awards for her dog training, and achieved the Kennel Club Good Citizen bronze, silver and gold award.

Recently she has been helping to train a dog bound for Crufts, and also rides horses at the weekends.

Mum Michelle said: “Makayla doesn’t complain – her positive attitude has inspired so many. Priory has been a brilliant school and helped her so much.”

The Government have also filmed a video of Makayla and her robot which was used for the Department for Digital Culture, Media and Sport. It was also used for International Youth Day.

Principal Angelos Markoutsas said: “We are thrilled with Makayla and her amazing attitude. She will have a brilliant career with animals and has shown huge determination.”
