"I want to give a voice to people who are not often represented in pop culture."

- on representing BAME autistic people through her art

To give an example, one of my original characters, Zari, is autistic and has ADHD like me. She has a lot of qualities that I have, such as impulsivity, RSD (rejection sensitive dysphoria) and having many special interests. Autistic people exist everywhere, including in fantasy-themed comics and artwork!
