I self-diagnosed as being Autistic at the age of 15 but didn't receive my official diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome until I was almost 22!
I work full-time in my own office within a school and live alone in a town in Hertfordshire. I initially grew up in East London before relocating to Hertfordshire aged 8 where I stayed until leaving for university in Canterbury, Kent at 18.
My university career lasted 5 years having switched my undergraduate to a BA Social Policy after having completed a year and a half of an Astrophysics degree! I'm now half way through the first year of a part-time MA in Autism Studies as a distance learner which is a lot of work but really satisfyingly challenging.
