JOB DESCRIPTION 

Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

 

I am a 17 year old boy living in the Butetown area of Cardiff. I am a wheelchair user and am diagnosed with Down Syndrome and mild Autism. I enjoy music, singing and seeing new place. I also love going to the shops where I can enjoy activities such as people watching and bird watching. I prefer my own personal space so because of this I don’t like busy or noisy places.
