Hi, My name is Jenny, im 20 years old and from Derbyshire. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at the age of 13 along with several other related conditions. At first, I struggled to accept it. I’d see other people who were autistic and thought the doctor had somehow got it wrong with me. But I slowly realised that everybody with Asperger’s was not the same.​

Living with Asperger’s can have its challenges, but it’s part of who I am and doesn’t make me any less than anyone else. I’m working with AMHA to challenge misconceptions of the condition and show others who have it that they shouldn’t feel ashamed.

Hi, My name’s Jenny, I’m 20 years old and I’m from Derbyshire. I am in my second year at De Montfort University, and I study English Language and Creative Writing. I love writing dark poetry, reading and playing the piano. And, oh yeah:  I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome when I was 13 years old, along with several other related conditions.
