Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I am a psychology student at Florida Atlantic University. My siblings and I are autistic, and we spend time with each other together. When I do not hit the books, I like to do autism advocacy. In fact, I created an autism website.

What Inspires You Every day? : Seeing people such as Haley Moss, Temple Grandin, and Benjamin Tarasewicz allows me to accept myself as a person. It also allows me to advocate for the autism community.

What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Just because you different does not make you a bad person. Different allows us to see unique perspectives in life.

What is your ultimate goal in life? : For my career goals, I want to either do Applied Behavioral Analysis or speech pathology. I want to work with people who have autism and other speech disorders.

What is a positive message you would like to give others? : Do not feel ashamed for being different- different gives you benefits. 

What questions would you like to ask others?: 1. What are your favorite hobbies?
2. Has anyone felt ashamed for being different?
