FB_IMG_1487132218945What would you like people to know about autism?

It is a special condition that many people have and we are not different just unique and special.

What were some of your challenges with autism when you were younger? Do you still deal with challenges today?

It was hard for me to communicate with people. They did not understand me and I did not like that.

What are some of your goals for the future?

I would like to go to college and continue to help people with autism and other disabilities.

What’s a misconception about autism out there that you would like to see debunked?

That we are different and we are not normal.

How could our readers learn more about you and what you are doing in the community?

They can ask my school community at ECLC, my church community my youth minister David Jefferson Jr. my family and people in my home town who knows me Elizabeth, NJ.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Autistic persons can do a lot like people without autism. Everyone can live a nice life without being labeled.
