A teenager who has Tourette’s syndrome shows how she plays Jenga.

Brennan Hawkins, from Timaru, New Zealand, shows the lighter side of her condition in many ways, including how she plays boardgames.

The student has visible tics arising from her syndrome and while her friend carefully tries to build the tower, Brennan constantly keeps knocking it down.

Having finally managed to build a tower, she decides to try and restrain her arms using a belt but finds it is too limiting.

Brennan said: “All my friends found it hilarious and wanted me to do more – I definitely will.

“I deal with my Tourette’s by focusing on the funny and positive side of it and also sharing my experiences with others.

“It was so funny and great to make and also great fun to plan.

“It went great.”
