tell us about yourself.
My name is Leigh Humpage and I live in Carnforth, N Lancs. I work as a
social worker with elderly people, and as a 'First Responder' at weekends.
I am a lone
parent, with a nine-year-old daughter Elizabeth.
I come from
East London originally, and moved to Lancashire eleven years ago.
your story about?
My story is about being an identical twin. Its a light-hearted look
at how it feels to be a twin, and peoples perceptions of twins.
you choose to tell this particular story?
Its been with me all my life. People have interesting ideas and
myths about twins.
it would be fun to tell people a bit about growing up as a twin, and how
twins have to work a little bit harder on developing their own identity
you get fed up being treated as half of something instead of a whole person.
the experience of making your digital story like?
Great fun. Never done anything like it before. Lots of help on hand with
the technology. Very creative. Nice people. Nice food.
youd achieved something special, both for yourself and others.
