Autism Awareness Month is Coming Up!

As some of you may know, April is autism awareness month. On April second I will be wearing blue to show my support and acceptance of others who have autism. I will be posting a lot of pictures of the stuff I plan on doing so stay tuned for that.

For those who are reading my blog and enjoying it, I would like to say thank you. Without you guys I do not think I would even bother writing this blog. It means a lot that you are taking time out of your day to read my ramblings. With that being said, I am going to do my best to have daily content from now on. I am not sure what it will be about, but I will try. It might be about Star Wars or video games, but I assure you it still has some value. Those are ways that I cope so just writing about it is helpful for me.

I am concerned though that by writing about many different things, I am spreading myself too thin. What are your thoughts on that? Please let me know. Especially other bloggers.

Now, back to the original topic. I have big ideas for my University regarding April second. There is a clock tower right in the middle of the campus and I want to light it up blue for Autism awareness day. I pride myself on being a self-advocate, but I want to change that to being a advocate for all people with disabilities. I feel like this is my calling. I need to help those who cannot help themselves by spreading awareness of what people with disabilities go through. Like I said in a post from a couple of days ago, I want to be an agent of change in this country.

I want as many people as possible to know my story. So, to that end, I will be writing up my life’s story on this blog. It will take a long time to fully write it, but once it is finished I will post it and I would like as many people as possible to read and share it. I want others to know it is not impossible to attain their dreams.

My initial dream was to graduate High School, when only close friends and family said I could. I did that. Now my dream is to graduate from college and go on to get my masters in journalism. I know I can do it, and I want to be an example to those who feel that they cannot.

April is a special month, and I want everyone to know that I am here. I may be autistic, but that will not stop me, it will aid me.

I will now close with a quote from Star Wars, “The Force will be with you, always.”
