My Fifth Sense UK Ambassador Role
Growing up with anosmia used to feel like such a lonely experience. But, after finding Fifth Sense I don’t feel alone anymore.
What is Fifth Sense? Fifth Sense is, “The charity for people affected by smell and taste disorders.” It was established in 2012 by Duncan Boak, who lost his sense of smell as the result of a head injury in 2005.
Fifth Sense’s strategy is “to address the lack of understanding within society of the role that the senses of smell and taste play in our lives (Yay!).”
“…We seek to play a leading role in educating society on the importance of the senses of smell and taste. Through this we can engender better awareness of the serious consequences of smell and taste disorders, demonstrate the need for better education amongst the medical profession, greater availability of medical services and the need for further research into such conditions and their treatment (Double yay!).”
As you all know, I have made it my life mission to spread awareness about anosmia. As an official ambassador for this amazing organization, I am connected to a myriad of valuable resources, information and most importantly, an awesome community. I feel encouraged, supported, and empowered.
Thank you, Fifth Sense, for your work. I am truly honored to be a part of your vision.
If you’re affected by a smell or taste-related disorder I invite you to join Fifth Sense. For more information, Please Visit: www.fifthsense.org.uk
