Hello, my name is Alex! I am also the self-proclaimed "Chicken Nugget Princess". I have worked for DJX since November 2012.  I am apart of the Ben Davis and Kelly K Show every morning, and I am the Middays Host 10a-3pm every day. I am obsessed with all things beauty. I have a serious skincare regimen and have even had to look into extra storage space for my collection! I love pink, Taylor Swift, decorating, high heels, and The Kardashians. I'm always looking for an adventure and to try something new- unless it's food...haha

Meet Tessa: She Was Born With No Nose

by Alex posted Jul 16 2014 12:06PM

Tessa is my new hero!

Like any other toddler Tessa Evans loves to dance, climb furniture and blow kisses.

But she suffers from a condition which means she was born with no nose. The 17-month-old has complete congenital arhinia, which is so rare there have only been 47 recorded cases in Britain.

Tessa has no sense of smell and no sinuses but she can cough, sneeze and catch a cold. And despite her difficulties, she always has a smile on her face, says her mother Gráinne. When her daughter was born with no nose Mrs Evans says her head was full of questions.

‘But since we got her home her differences have faded into the background,’ she said

Tessa will have a prosthetic nose fitted later this year.

‘She is perfect to us but we have to think about what will make life as normal as possible for her,’ said Mrs Evans of Maghera, Co Derry.
