#Actuallyautistic insights on life on the spectrum
Hi, I’m Kirsti from Finland. I’m a writer, unicorn lover, and daydreamer.
I’m best known by my pen name Kirsty Kendall, which is also the name of this website.
Fantasy and stories have always been close to my heart. Escaping from reality has been my favorite thing since I was a kid.
Whether it’s writing fiction, reading books, playing video games, or just daydreaming, I have always enjoyed living in fantasies.
I have a Master´s degree in literature. I guess I’ve never really grown up because I’m still very much into all pink, sparkling, cute things; and unicorns! Well, I think growing up is overrated.
I’ve been through some hard times in my life, and fantasy and unicorn magic has been a great comfort to me during those times. I also firmly believe not all things that exist can be seen with eyes.
My life changed at the age of 28 when I got diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and ADHD. I had felt different for my whole life, without knowing why.
Now I want to promote the power of being different. My books spread the message of acceptance and inclusivity. Because being unique is magical!
Writer & Content Creator
I’m a blogger and content creator. I’ve been writing since I was 6 years old.
I started blogging about autism because I needed to process my experiences. I wanted to help others do the same.
Most of the information about autism is written by neurotypicals. That’s why there’s so much misinformation about autism.
That needs to change! It’s time for #actuallyautistic voices to be heard.
