About Me

ActuallyAutisticInstagramActivistCollegeStudentSocialJusticeActivistNeurodivergent

I am an autistic content creator, documenting my journey to finding my place in a neurotypical world. Through my content, I support autistic people to understand themselves, self- advocate and feel as if they belong. My content also helps the general public to be aware and accepting of autism. I also work part time in the charity and research sector evaluating grants programmes, interacting with decision makers, speaking at conferences and carrying out research.

Ideal Workplace Values

I would like a workplace which has the same mission of wanting to empower neurodivergent and disabled people, improve the outcomes for marginalised groups and want to create change in the world.
