Small things matter in a Diverse World
My connection to nature and path to success began with building houses for ants and making small things, a hidden talent, that my Mother called "the diamond in the dustbin". I would like my work to be an example of what neuro-diverse people are capable of. Lifting the lid and inviting people to look at the abilities of Autistic and Dyslexic people. I concentrate for prolonged periods, I have amazing dexterity and control of my body. The condition Teachers said would anchor me to failure has driven me to succeed, without it I would not be who I am or able to work as I do. I am blessed, I learn differently, and I would like to help others understand and welcome neurodiversity as a condition of hidden talents to be discovered and encouraged, rather than feared.
