I admit, I have a Snapchat account but I usually take photos and videos of stuff around me. I often dislike being photographed because when I try to smile, I always somehow grimace or have that faraway look in my eyes. I always have to widen my eyes too or I look half-asleep in photos without reali...

I think it all depends on what type of boarding school that you attend. I attend a boarding school for deaf students and I enjoy it a lot there. The students and staff there are very welcoming, accepting, caring and friendly, and also very aware and understanding of disabilities other than deafness...

I admit that before I moved schools, I did feel jealousy towards people who could socialise easily and were considered as part of the "norm" because I only ever wanted to be accepted by my peers. I also used to feel jealousy towards my mother's friend who, at the time, was much closer wit...

No, but since I am learning BSL (British Sign Language) as a second language because I attend a school for deaf students, I can relate and have seen videos of people speaking ASL before. I've noticed that facial expressions and body language are a huge part of sign languages. A lot of people, when ...

I accept myself although when I was younger, I used to find that having Asperger's and deafness was incredibly difficult to cope and come to terms with in an environment where there was very little understanding and acceptance of disabilities and disabled people. I guess that I've learned to accept...

About half an hour ago, I was completing my maths prep with help from my maths teacher. Her form class was there too. I drank a cup of coffee as I felt tired and needed the extra energy boost. I usually drink a small cup of white coffee with my breakfast. Then about halfway through solving the ques...

Drawing comic art. When I draw, it's like everything around me has disappeared and I'm in my own world.

I don't see the huge deal about Facebook and the craze for "likes" and comments. I only have it to keep in touch with my family members. I have had bad experiences on Facebook though. I've been cyber bullied on there before. First time was a few years ago when someone from my old primary ...

"College" in England is different than in college in the USA. We study at A Level or BTEC in college (or sixth form if the college is attached to a secondary school). I attend a boarding school and stay in a dormitory, so I guess I have a feeling of what staying at a dormitory in universi...

I only hit myself during a meltdown or a shutdown. It feels like the only touch of reality that I feel during a meltdown or a shutdown, and the only way to release the emotions that have been building up for so long.

Comic books - I read comics almost everyday and draw too. I'd love to become a comic book artist one day and spend the rest of my life drawing and writing my own comics. That would be bliss. Sciences (which I'm studying at A Level) - I've always loved science, especially medical science. I like to ...

The doctor who saved my father's life when my father had cancer.

And the previous headmaster of my school who transformed my life for the very best. He has transformed the lives of countless other disabled children like me.

When I was little, before I started to speak, I was obsessed with dinosaurs and Jurassic Park . I would watch Jurassic Park almost every day. When I turned two, I started to recite the names of dinosaur species over and over again but wouldn't say anything else. I kept dinosaur toys and drew pictur...

I am uncoordinated. I cannot walk in a straight line. Sometimes, I struggle to distinguish left from right and right from left etc. Physically writing is difficult for me as it requires intense concentration to get the movements correct. Typing my notes in class is much easier for me so I always ca...

Although I'm not American, I was raised in two different cultures at once: British culture as my father is British, and Chinese culture as my mother is British HK-Chinese. When I was younger, I learned very quickly that the Chinese tend to be very reserved and quiet, and keep to themselves. I think...
