I’m misspraxic – an anonymous university student with Dyspraxia and other hidden specific learning difficulties. I hope to raise awareness of living and studying with hidden conditions at university, as well as providing support and encouragement to dyspraxic students in a similar situation.
I study Modern Languages in the UK, and I am in the third year of my degree – that means spending a year abroad. I have already spent a challenging but very worthwhile seven months in Germany. I took part in a Summer School at Heidelberg University for the month of August (2016), and from September 2016 until the end of February 2017 I was an English Language Assistant at a comprehensive school near Dusseldorf.
Following my time in Germany, I will spend six months in France – I have an internship in Paris from March until the end of August. I try to post each fortnight to give you an idea of what I am up to, and how I am finding the experience.
I hope my posts can reassure other dyspraxic students that it is possible to survive at university, to do a year abroad, and enjoy many other experiences (even when things get challenging, as they inevitably do!)
