About me

 I am 18 years old and live at home with my mum and dad. I have a sister who is at university in Edinburgh, I speak with her regularly on facetime.

I like to draw, write stories, and watch YouTube videos.  I also enjoy swimming, going to gymnastics and getting my hair cut at the salon. 

At weekends I go food shopping, visit a cafe for ice cream, or walk the dog with my family. I am sensitive to light and sound depending on the situation. If you ask me a question you need to give me a few minutes to respond, I like to process the question before answering.
