Unstoppable. Determined. Dedicated. Committed.
The above words have similar meanings, all of which describe me.
I am unstoppable – obstacles and road blocks may cause me to struggle, slow down, and even stop for a short amount of time, but I don’t give up.
There have been times where I have thought about it, but I have people in my life who have been there for me every step of the way. People who get it, people who care, and most importantly people who love me for who I am; they believe in me and won’t let me give up.
I am determined – if I put my mind to something, I will do it, that is just my personality. I am a go getter. If I don’t know how to do it, I will figure it out and get it done. The task may take me a little longer, but it gets done none the less.
I am dedicated to almost everything that I do. I give it my best shot, and if I need help, I ask. I am dedicated to teaching people about Autism from my perspective.
I am committed to teaching and advocating about Autism. This is my mission, and I take it seriously. I do it because I want to do it, advocating for autism is what I was meant to do, I am convinced of it. It just took some life experience, and learning about myself and how my autism affected me for me to realize it.
