Generation 2015 profiles: Joely Colmer

I'm 22 and I live in Bournemouth with my supportive family.

I have written a book about living with Asperger's syndrome. I love my disability for the unique qualities and understanding it gives me.

My biggest passion is volunteering. I adore public speaking about life with Asperger's, and designing disability awareness workshops for young people and professionals to foster understanding of disabilities.

I strive for equality and understanding in society, working tirelessly to raise understanding and challenge negative perceptions of disability. I love life!
