I am an autistic accountant living and working in the North West of England.
I set my sights on being an accountant at 16 and it has been an incredibly rough journey between then and now. I have hit rock bottom and as JK Rowling said, it became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. When you look a depression that dark straight in the eye you come out with a whole new perspective on what matters in life. It is because of this I advocate strongly for the inclusion and support of those with a neurodiversity (autism, dyslexia etc), as well as for mental health awareness/understanding.
I share my life openly and honestly in my blog posts and books to help people understand autistic life.
Be patient, be kind.
