... and you can be, too.
There are more ways than one to get to where you want to be. Even for us, neurodivergent types.
All through primary school my parents were told I would never amount to much. Understanding of neurodiverse expression was very limited at the time.
Being of the pragmatic persuasion, they had me to a typing course when I was 10, maybe 11 years old, so that I at least had some practical skills. It put me on a path towards both administrative and IT skills.
In secondary school - a vocational school - things didn't much improve until I was about 13, 14 years old and in year 3. Suddenly I managed to focus on a goal - to excel in my studies. I did so well I was admitted to a sixth form college.
However well I did there, I failed to succeed in two College programmes, one at the very end of the 4 year programme. Circumstantial overwhelm interfered with my ability to focus and deliver. ADHD struck once again.
Thanks to my typing and administrative skills, I found work as a legal secretary, which laid the foundations for my career in law. Although I did do some legal training over the course of my career, it was all on the job. My skill and experience comes from 20 years' hands-on practice of Corporate and Commercial Law.
