A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I live in the Ely area of Cardiff with my mum. I am a young lady in my early 20s, with autism and some speech and language issues, although I can make myself understood. I’m very much a girly girl who likes to have my hair done, nails and jewellery. I’m currently at college trying to develop life skills but because of the pandemic, I was not really able to attend college, so it’s important that my new PA helps me to develop skills so I can get on in life. This really is a job where you can make a difference to someone’s life! I enjoy using the PC, arts and crafts, going out walking (whatever the weather), music and singing. I’m at college every day except Thursday and weekends. I need support to help me learn how to clean, cook and bake et cetera to make me more independent in the long run. I’m a very happy and friendly individual. I have very little awareness of danger.
