Autism Unveiled Week 2
Who am I?
I am Thomas Ostrowski an autistic experimental filmmaker about to graduate college. I watch at least one movie a day.
How is autism a part of me?
Having been diagnosed as a kid, I knew I was different from my peers. I kept it a secret until college where I started to become more comfortable with this part of who I am. I eventually made my senior project about myself as a way to advocate for myself.
I cannot separate autism from any one part of my identity.
What makes me a good friend?
I’m the kind of person who will listen to what you have to say, provide advice, and respect your boundaries.
