Its possible i already did this years ago but oh well

My name is Leyna and im 17 years old. im am currently studying for 4 alevles (politics,media, health and social care and psychology) in my local grammar school. Erm i was diagnosed with Dyspraxia when i was about 4. Its caused several problems such as atrocious hand writing and amazingly bad co-ordination. But luckily most of it is all very minor because i never wanted to be a good dancer anyway! I am lucky enough to have secured a part time job in boots and am active within guides. I love animals and have been chosen to take part in a gap year for a whole year in south Africa working in an orphanage. which is awesome cos i had to go for a week in scotland to be assesed but very scary at the same time!
Erm im generaly a good person who is upbeat but i have some issues with self harm but generally im nice so please talk to me! :D

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 22. I have both dyspraxia and Aspergers Syndrome. I live in Surrey in south east England and I work as a support worker in a residential school for children with severe and complex epilepsy and other neurological and physical disabilities. It is very challenging but I enjoy it and I am getting better at it now! I love animals (I have 3 cats at home), the Internet, learning about other cultures and languages, reading and listening to music. I hope you enjoy the boards :D
