Today has been 12 years since I walked into the office of my employer. All I knew at that time is that I had a job and who my direct supervisor was. I had no idea what the job exactly involved or what I was exactly doing. What I did know was that it was an opportunity that has evolved into being more educated about mental health and advocacy. It is a job that even to this day I still love .
Many say that having an autistic individual close to Fireworks could cause utter chaos! In fact, I have seen numerous suggestions and reminders to be sensitive to individuals on the spectrum by being considerate of their needs during this noisy holiday. I am learning slowly not to let my Autism define me in the life of me, but define what Autism is.
