Nikki Lilly is an award-winning presenter and vlogger, with an Emmy, a BAFTA and over one million YouTube subscribers to her name. She’s presented several of her own CBBC shows, and even has a book on the way 'Come on Life'. It’s a phenomenal set of achievements, made even more amazing by the fact that she’s only 16 years old. It’s what Nikki gives back that makes her truly inspiring. As a child, she displayed symptoms of what was later diagnosed as Arteriovenous Malformation. She’s endured more than 70 operations to treat it, and at just nine years old she set up the Butterfly AVM Charity to help others and raise awareness. In this conversation, Nikki explains what real beauty means to her, how she overcomes her darkest days, plus Nikki and Katie share their respective experiences of living with a visible difference.
