Autism can be described as a developmental disorder that impairs an individual’s ability to interact or communicate.
After researching this condition and learning that my friend’s son was diagnosed with it, I decided to become an advocate for Autism!
To raise funding and awareness for this condition, I decided to organize a team for the Autism Speaks walk in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (2018). Walking for a great cause and sponsoring my friend’s son, Jalyn was an amazing experience.
Being an advocate for Autism didn’t allow my efforts to stop there. I had the opportunity to donate book bags and supplies to a class of Autistic students at Brookline Elementary School (Pittsburgh).
My goal as an advocate for Autism is to remind each individual that their strength comes from our savior, and that this condition doesn’t have to place a limit on their ability.
The Easy To Read Version of 1 John 4:4 tells us the following, “My dear children, you belong to God, so you have already defeated these false prophets. That’s because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
As long as you have the GREATEST GOD within you, you’ll always have the ability to prosper and conquer ANYTHING that you face in this world!
YOU ARE AUTISM STRONG!
