Maura: magical, cheeky, loyal Asperkid

Autism Unveiled Week 5

Maura OToole

Who Am I?

I am a small (11-almost-12-year-old) girl who lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. I love magic, fairytales and fantastical things. I am a Make a Wish kid, my wish was to be an actual Disney Princess. My favorite color is purple and I love chocolate!!!!!!! I love the Minecraft-meets-My-Little-Pony YouTuber Amylee33 because she is always happy and whenever I hear her voice it makes me happy!!!

How is Autism part of me?

My whole family has Autism, including my mom, author, Jennifer O’Toole (yay!). I also have the Best dog ever, Daisy! I also have two brothers ages 8 and 5. I love my autism because it makes me me and it gives my brain that extra sparkle!!!!!!
