Gilly Harvie

I'm Gilly Harvie and I live in Brisbane with my parents and three cats. I have dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. My favourite things to do are play soccer, build LEGO and watch YouTube. I find reading hard but I try anyway. If there are pictures in the books then it makes it more interesting for me. 

My mum took this picture of me one night after a long week at school. I tried to say a word and it came out wrong. I added the explosion because sometimes I get angry with myself when I can't get the words outright. Mum tells me to be kind to myself, but I still feel stupid. She says I'm not. I'd like people to know that I'm listening to them, and taking in what they say. I just find it hard to jump into the conversation to say what I'm thinking.
