JOB DESCRIPTION

Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a nineteen-year-old lad living with my grandparents and siblings in Tonypandy. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome aged 7yrs old. I like playing computer games like Mario, art; youtube etc, and enjoy my own company in my bedroom most days unless we have planned activities. I have successfully completed a foundation course in Catering and I then applied for an IT qualification year 1&2 BTEC which I passed, and will be attending my final year level 3 in September 2021. I am a quiet person, but once I get to know you, I can be quite chatty about subjects I am interested in; I like the occasional light joke. It may take me some time to open up to a new person.
