Teenage and Young adult Hip Dysplasia and Impingement.

the team!:-)

We are constantly asked about our team, so here you go!

We are a fairly large team therefore it would be impossible to mention everyone on this page, however here are the 7 main Team Members! 

Hannah- HappyHip's Founder=Full Time, Voluntary

This is Hannah. Hannah is the Founder of HappyHips. She Founded HappyHips in 2010 when she was really struggling to cope with the challenges of having Hip Dyplasia as a Teen and she was also facing a Total Hip Replacement. She works tirelessly to keep HappyHips running smoothly and tries to keep everyone happy as much as possible all of the time. Hannah is currently also balancing her work at HappyHips with her Degree Studies at University but every spare moment is dedicated to HappyHips. We are always shocked by her speedy responses, as she has now set up her phone to receive HappyHip updates as well.

This is Ruqayyah and she is our Chief Moderator. Ruqayyah helped Hannah (above) to set up HappyHips in 2010 and has been there eversince.

She has battled with the challenges Hip Dysplasia causes amazingly well and loves being able to support others by sharing her own experiences.

One Hip World Team

One Hip World (OHW) is an organisation that aims to build a community for the world of people with Hip Dysplasia, by encouraging a kind, loving and supportive atmosphere that strengthens others in their fight, and to make the world of Hip Dysplasia just a little bit `smaller'. At the same time they aim to empower those affected by Hip Dysplasia by helping them control the overwhelming feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and frustration. All of this is achieved while simultaneously raising astonishing amounts of money for IHDI. Togethwe we will, Together we can!!!

We are now thrilled to announce that HappyHips has joined forces with OHW and from now on will be their ‘Teenage and Young Adult Hip Advocate’. This is a great privilege to be given and all of the HappyHips Team are extremely excited to be working with such an amazing community. We can't wait to see what the future brings us all, as one big team.
