My name is Marloes and I’m 31 years old. I live in Soest with my two cats and I work as an office manager. I’ve known that I have autism since 2020. After reading a piece on the internet about women with autism, all the pieces of the puzzle fell into place for me, and I started with further exploration.
Besides the fact that autism entails a lot of inconveniences for me, I’m always looking for its positive sides. For example, I’m good at writing texts (and puns), I always make clear agreements, I’m extremely creative and you can bring me along if you want to win a pub quiz, because I remember a lot of random facts.
Despite the fact that I never managed to complete an education, I am now exactly where I want to be in terms of employment. By working hard and tripping a lot along the way, I also managed to get to this point. That is automatically my tip for everyone: if plan A doesn’t work, try plan B!
