JOB DESCRIPTION

SOMETHING ABOUT ME

I am a 20-year-old young man living with my family in the Aberman area. I am attending college 4 days a week which I really enjoy. I am a creative person and I love drawing. I have attended life drawing which was a great experience. I have visited London and attended a Comic Con event which is a speculative fiction fan convention. I am yet to attend the one held in Cardiff which I would love to attend. I like watching films of any genre except horror and I am quite an easy going person and very caring. I am looking for a personal assistant who can accompany me on activities outside the home to help me socialise. I am a high functioning Autistic person and can be a bit quiet and shy.
