Through it all she has shown incredible inner strength and emotional resilience .

This is her story, in her own words, of her journey with Autism. She talks specifically about her struggles with the conventional school system, an experience common to many teenagers with AS.

Her story is full of insight , and will be a revelation to so many other young people, their families and professionals. Her account is poignant, and is told with great candour..”Masking is exhausting, but it’s what I need to do in this neurotypical world to survive.”
