Autism Unveiled Project Week 2
I have a special need, I have autism. I’m creative, talented & autistic. Autism helps me to work hard, because I see things in a different way. Even with autism I have been able to do a lot of things. I got a lead role on a Theater play Disney Aladdin Broadway Jr. I have been on TV shows: About a Boy and Parenthood. They hired me to be a background actor. I like it because it was not difficult to listen to the director.
Also, I sold a lot of paintings last year and raised money for different autism related charities. I can sing, play piano & I’m learning how to play guitar. I want to learn more to become a scriptwriter and a director, and continue acting on TV. My big dream is to make a movie about super heroes.
My live motto is “Autism will not stop me”. I will continue developing my creative talents. No one will stop autism. Autism will never stop me.
No one should feel autism is awful because they can do whatever they want with hard work.
