Hi, Fans and Followers, it’s me Daniel Fife again and I have a story to write about of how people can still be successful while on the autism spectrum. Having it one will face challenges, but can be successful too. Despite what some may believe, some can live on their own. There are some that can’t and don’t speak. Everyone is different on the spectrum. Some have become inventors (I will cover that later). I have been able to make friends despite having it and i have a ton of friends. Some people don’t understand the autism spectrum, some do. I was able to graduate college on my own, but it took 5 years as I couldn’t handle all 15 credits and I went through a lot of struggles and was off to a bad start but I turned around. I am able to be in crowded places despite that it can cause sensory issues.
I, myself am on the autism spectrum. I face challenges and struggles, but I work through it and HARD! I am smart at some things like numbers, birthdays and have an extensive visual memory. I aim and strive to be successful in life. I live on my own.
As some of you heard recently, this 24 year old woman from Florida named Haley Moss became a lawyer and is the first one in Florida to practice law with autism. When Haley was 3, her parents worried about her delayed speech. Her parents thought she would not hold a job or have friends. Haley had graduated from University of Florida with a law degree! In college Haley wrote 2 books including “A Freshman Survival Guide for College Students with the Autism Spectrum Disorders”. She never let what people said deter her from her dreams. sources: https://www.today.com/health/haley-moss-first-lawyer-florida-open-about-having-autism-t149068 and gives more on the story. This was so sensational that it was on TV.
Here is a list of people who have Autism; https://www.appliedbehavioranalysisprograms.com/historys-30-most-inspiring-people-on-the-autism-spectrum/ . The people in there are famous writers, inventors, actors and directors, all whom are brilliant
Inventors like Albert Einstien had autism. He was socially awkward but was brilliant. My favorite Director Tim Burton. He has made some great works like Beetlejuice, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Alice in Wonderland, Corpse Bride, and Nightmare Before Christmas. He has a wife whom had said that she loves everything about him. He works in silence. Dan Akyroid is on the list of people with autism and he is a great actor too and has been on Saturday Night Life as well and he was Ray in Ghostbusters.
in 2012 there was a Miss Montana with Autism.
I feel touched to have shown the strengths of people who have autism.
