Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
I have a photographic memory. I only have to see something once, and I never forget it.
It’s my party piece. It’s what I always do for school talent shows. I get people from the audience to call out names, dates, strings of numbers, bits of poetry. I write them all on the whiteboard, look at it once, then I get them blindfold me and recite them all back.
It’s something I’ve been able to do all my life. It’s useful for exams, and directions, and shopping lists, although it’s not as useful as people think.
“You should be working for the government or something,” people always said. I just used to laugh.
Until the day I came out of school, and the black car was waiting for me.
