Meet Hancine

“Hi, I’m Hancine

I’m the Programme Lead at academyEX overseeing the delivery of the Leading Change for Good postgraduate certificate. I’m a neurodivergent individual with dyslexia and ADHD. Tune in to hear my experience into what it’s like to be neurodivergent in the workplace. I hope this promotes a greater understanding and inclusivity for all.

​​As a neurodivergent individual with Dyslexia and ADHD, I have faced many challenges in navigating the traditional systems of society. However, I have found ways to thrive and want to share my experiences with others to help them see that there is hope and a way forward. I want to inspire others and let them know that even if the current systems don’t work for us, we can find ways to “fit” and succeed, and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Disclaimer: As you will learn everyone with a Neurodiversity is different. There is a saying if you have met one Autistic person then you have met ONE Autistic person. This applies for every other neurodiversity, everyone has different strengths, weaknesses and sits differently on the spectrum of the Neurodiversity they have.
