In 2016, I found out that I was nominated for Future Horizons Temple Grandin Award. I’m happy to share that during that year I was selected as the winner of this amazing honor!

Future Horizons today is the World Leader in Autism & Sensory Resources & Conferences. The grand prize of this Temple Grandin Award is given to two individuals (one with autism; one with Asperger’s) who have made a major accomplishment in the past year, although any accomplishment is worthy of nomination and every nominee is a winner.”

I’d like to thank Future Horizons for selecting me for this award and for Dr. Grandin for everything that she continues to do to make a difference in the lives of others! She is one of my idols and I hope to one day make a similar impact to the one she’s made in our community.
