Hi @AutisticGirl I know I have already introduced myself to you in a different post but I just wanted to say

Welcome Aboard Hasan Minhaj GIF by Patriot Act

It's great to have you here 🙂

That's brilliant that you want to be an activist for neurodiversity acceptance and that you also want to encourage young people to read for pleasure. Thank you for sharing that with us. Is this something you have recently discovered that you would like to do or have you known for a while? Also, can I ask, if you know how you want to go about this or is this something you're still exploring?

I have wanted to be a neurodiversity advocate/activist since i read the spectrum girls survival guide by siena castellon actually i think it was before then i think i read about her in a book called wonderfully wired brains and found out she founded neurodiversity celebration week when she was like 16 only 2 years older than i am now.
I was brought up surrounded by books being encouraged to read so that's where that came from. I am going to start a podcast and a blog

That's brilliant - it sounds like you already have a plan! Will you be focusing on both things at once or do you think you'll focus on one thing first? 

I have heard of Siena Castellon and it is truly inspiring, what she has already managed to achieve and how her work is making a difference. I haven't read any of her books yet but will be adding her to my reading list.

I'm focusing on the blog first as it is easier and it takes more work it is going to be called Neuro Rambles Art as it ties in with the podcast which is going to be called Neuro Rambles. The blog is going to have lots of diagrams and images as lots of neurodivergent people find visual learning easier it also just more interesting. 

Also another inspiration of mine is Chloé Hayden who is an australian disability advocate and motivational speaker as well as an actor she has also written a book called "Different, Not Less" which is amazing

That's great that you already know exactly what you want to do. I agree, I also think that it makes it more interesting when you have diagrams and images, rather than just text. It also makes it easier to read somehow when it's broken up like that.

I have heard of Chloe Hayden but mainly through her acting. I didn't realise that she has also written a book - great title. Thank you for letting us know. I will add her name to my list of books to read. Are there any other books you would recommend?

Hi @AutisticGirl, I just wanted to check in and see how you are doing, as we haven't heard from you in a while? How is your Blog coming along, if you don't mind me asking?

I'm not sure I mentioned this before but I love your enthusiasm in how you approach things 😊
