Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I have the ability to know particular areas very well once trained and given some support. I am a very curious person and am always seeking more knowledge. I view things in a holistic, systemic way, and like seeing where different areas and interests intersect. I'm good at taking seemingly unrelated concepts and finding connections between them.
