EXPERIENCE

EDITOR, CONTENT CREATOR AND MODERATOR | ASPIRING TO BE YOU

As a content creator at Aspiring-To Be You, I completed scientific articles on some of the most prevalent areas of research regarding Autism Spectrum Disorder and its associated comorbidities, including anorexia nervosa. Alongside formulating possible future explorations into the neurobiological underpinnings of neurodivergence, I actively developed an ability to interpret complex information using a multitude of contrasting perspectives, thus enabling me to encapsulate my knowledge in a cohesive manner. 

  • Editor of personal accounts and research articles

  • Coordinator of events 

  • Co-founder and moderator of an online forum for autistic women 

  • Producer of opinion articles

PANELLIST AT AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

In October 2022, I was recruited as a panellist at an international conference, which sought to educate parents of autistic children about the realities of navigating childhood with Autism Spectrum Disorder and its associated psychopathologies. I was empowered to enlighten the participants about my own experience with this developmental disorder, using valuable research to reinforce my advice. 

  • Public speaker to an audience of approximately 60 attendees

  • Provisioner of advice to parents of autistic children 

CO-DEVELOPMENT AND HOSTING OF SUPPORT FOR AUTISTIC WOMEN

Collaborating with Aspiring-To Be You, a platform dedicated to scientific communication and the raising of awareness for Autism Spectrum Disorder, I was committed to co-developing and hosting a unique virtual platform dedicated to self-diagnosed and formally diagnosed autistic women.
