    Hi,
    I want to become a journalist but I have Aspergers syndrome which means I have bad communication skills. Do you have any advice on how to become a journalist bearing in mind my condition or should I follow another career path?

    Hi I read a story about a man who started off with a degree in journalism and music and he now owns his own music pr company. You could always just go down the PR route, which would be less communicating but what you would communicate would be more important. Or you could do something like me- a tourism and journalism degree with a view to be a travel writer. Travel writing is much more focused on the places you go rather than the people you talk to.

    P.S. My brother has Autism. So I can see where you're coming from =]

    You may not find this particularly useful but I say don't let Aspergers hold you back from your dreams. Sit down and plan your future and keep working towards those goals!
