Autism is a part of me that makes me, me. It’s a big part because it’s how my brain thinks about and understands things differently. I have lots of other ingredients too. I’m kind. I’m clever. I’m playful. I’m cautious. I’m very sensitive. I’m observant. I’m a seeker – I like to learn about things. I’m funny. I have my own unique personality and my own likes, dislikes and my own way of doing things. I’m a student, a gymnast, a swimmer, an artist, a friend, a daughter, and ‘Mumma’ to my cats and puppy. I am lots of things. I have lots of ingredients that make me, me.
