Portraits of Jennifer TaylorLate last year I was introduced to Jennifer over Facebook by my sister... I have two wonderful nieces who are both on the autistic spectrum and my sister (Annmarie - their mum) does some amazing work trying to raise awareness of autism. My sister Annmarie Coyle also runs the fabulous Legenderry Ladies which was set up to help women who had set up micro businesses by giving them a sales platform in the form of pop up shops and craft fairs etc. At the City Hotel Christmas craft fair 2017 Jennifer and Annmarie met and had one thing in common... both had children who are autistic. Jennifer was very kind and volunteered her time to come and help sell tickets for The Jigsaw Project whilst allowing kids to try on her Mrs Ireland crown.
"I felt I was not the pageant stereotype, I am not a size 8, in fact I am a size 16-18, and the fashion industry calls this ‘plus size, nor am I young."
