.For the last 5 years I have been sharing my personal insight and the benefits of human and animal connection. Often stepping out of my comfort zone sharing vulnerable, raw, and real moments of life, challenges faced by young autistic teens in hope to educate and inspire others.
I have become recognised and valued contributor within the Animal Assisted Learning/Therapy platforms My connection with animals has given me strength needed to navigate life as an autistic teen who faces daily challenges of self-harm, anxiety, depression & PTSD
My journey is about understanding myself emotionally through the connection of animals, more importantly this journey is about learning self-care. I welcome respectful comments and sharing of other autistics perspectives, solutions and strategies on my posts as these comments may help others in some way.
I do not like conflicts on my page , please be amazing adult role models for young people like myself and choose kindness and understanding.
Most importantly due to my age I do not access the internet on my own. I always have an adult with me. I take cyber saftey very seriously.
And NO , I do not chat on messenger
Finally please remember my posts are from my own personal perspective.
I do not represent all autistics , as all autistics experience life differently.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
