So...This is the where I introduce myself, isn’t it?
My name’s Maleeka!
It should (hopefully) be obvious that I’m a sentient, five-sensed, three-dimensional life form. In laymen’s terms, a Human.
But. What kind of human am I?
I’m a girl.
I have existed for just over fifteen years now.
I’m from the UK but I also have Middle-Eastern heritage.
Oh, and I just so happen to be Visually Impaired.
I was born with a pretty rare, Genetically-Inherited eye condition known as Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis. (Leber’s Type Retinal Dystrophy.)
But to make things easier, let’s stick to calling it LCA.
This technically means that I’m a four-and-a-bit sensed life form. (Details!)
Due to the fact that I have had LCA my whole life; the vision I have...Well, it’s all I’ve known.
This means that compared to the majority (y’know, those crazy people who believe in the myth of- what’s it called? Seat? Slide?) I have my own, very unique perspective of the world!
I’m trying so very hard for this to not sound cliche, sentimental or whatever, but seriously, my level of sight, though physically less than most people’s, has allowed me to ‘see’ the world in OTHER ways.
Yes, I fall under the “heightened-senses’ stereotype!
I could literally go on and on about my life, perspective and stuff; so I’ll just stop here.
Now, here’s a little bit more about me as a person. (Time to Psychoanalyse myself. Yay!)
My interests include:
Audiobooks/Books & Music
Anything Sensory (Lights, textures, items, motion etc)
Psychology & Sociology
As you can tel, my personality is pretty much split in half.
(My life, and bedroom decor revolve
around those two sides of me.)
There’s the whimsical, fantasy-loving, creative writer which fuels my imagination and Hyperempathy.
And the sarcastic, analytical, tech-loving gamer Nerd which fuels my Perfectionism and drive for success.
Stuff I’m good at:
Being Stubborn (haha...)
Come on! We all love that rich, chocolate-y goodness with fluffy cream and mouth-wateringly sweet marshma-AHEM.
...I’m easily sidetracked.
Also, I often struggle with small talk/banter and social customs/gestures/mannerisms; I tend to ramble a lot and attempt to squeeze everything I want to say in a very small amount of time!
Which is fun.
That’s all I’ve got to say for now!
Thank you for taking the time to read about me
