Q: What was the most difficult part of going to school?
A: “Wished to hope for a cure, but autism stayed. When I tried to stop my weird ways, others were happy, but I was in pain. Autism is not a choice. I can’t breathe posing as normal. Autism places me as different and differences are feared. Autism is not welcome. Autism is to be hidden to please schools. Don’t ask us to be you when we experience the world differently.”
