Hi guys im Alexa, I’m from the midlands in England and while not officially diagnosed with dyspraxia yet (October 24th can’t come soon enough) every one who knows me knows I’m dyspraxic.

I also play cello ukulele guitar and drums and am hoping that I get a piano or bass for Christmas and will eventually get to learn them.
