Hi, I'm Sammy. Welcome to my website! I'm 18 years old, a huge fan of NASCAR and Kyle Busch is my favorite driver. I love being at the track more than anywhere in the world. I'm an autism advocate and I'm actually on the spectrum myself(Aspie). I want to promote acceptance, inclusion and better understanding for people with autism as much as I can.
My autism awareness mission focuses on three things...
1. Education: Most people have heard of autism, but they may not fully understand what it means. The concept that it’s a spectrum can be a bit confusing, but I hope to help educate people or at least encourage them to become better educated about what it means to be autistic; how very different one person diagnosed with autism can be from another individual on the spectrum and maybe correct some of the false assumptions and misinformation about people with autism.
2. Inspiration: I want people with autism to find the inspiration to experience life as fully as possible. That may mean trying something new that you’re anxious about, but many times you’ll find there was no reason to be worried. I also want all people to be inspired to find ways to better understand as well as help and support those on the spectrum. Even seemingly small acts of kindness, compassion and support can have a big impact.
3. Participation: It's not enough to just be aware or even accepting of those with autism(although that's a very good start), but they should also be included, supported and welcomed in all the aspects of society in which they are capable of participating.
I’m always trying to do more to spread autism awareness and hope you might consider helping me.
