Welcome to jaccipillar.com
Jacci Pillar (me, why do we have to write these things in uncomfortable third person?) is an autistic anthropologist, author and comedian – who also happens to have legs with metal stuff in them and be non-neurotypical (brain injured and ASD).
*Ahem. Back to first person*
I want to spread messages of healing and hope and positive messages about diversity. I don’t shy away from dark content either, so it aims to be honest in the process too.
This page started out as a personal blog about travel and happiness. It morphed into three themes being:
- Travel and how it fundamentally change us – out of the original fundraiser for Beyond Blue when I trekked through Nepal
- Disability and disability awareness – particularly neurodiversity and mental health topics
- Comedy, women in comedy and the power of laughter and narrative to heal and shape our lives in positive ways
Oh and I am entirely fueled by coffee and “inappropriate” thoughts (whatever the heck inappropriate means!). Welcome! Love and blessings to you all.
