I’m Zulay and after my daughter was born, I was suffering from very poor mental health. Whilst I was in Hospital I started to fold an Origami frog. I had learned the art when I was a child, and in a short time I had a frog jumping around the table. The patients there quickly asked me to do a jumping frog for them too which I replied, ‘I will teach you how to make one’. In that instant, we shared a moment of clarity, and my passion was reignited. Angela Loveridge and I met through the British Origami Society and later met Dr. Lizzie Burns. We were all involved in teaching Origami to hospitals and to disadvantaged groups in different parts of the UK. Sharing the same passion of the benefits of Origami we then developed our project and in January 2018 we set up our social enterprise Origami Pulse CIC.
