Spokesperson for Autism

I'm very passionate about advocating for autism because I was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, so I've created my platform - "Ability Beyond Disability" to help encourage those with disabilities that they can accomplish anything. However, I am very passionate about helping people on a larger scale one day, so I'm studying to work at the United Nations.

Speaking at United Nations


I love writing in my spare time, but it is one of my dreams to be a professional author. I am currently writing a series of historical fantasy novels that I hope to get published one day.


I enjoy modeling and have walked in several shows for New York Fashion Week, which was a big deal for me. Modeling means breaking barriers for me, and every time I get onstage, I show people that I can do anything despite my disability. I've currently been signed to a modeling agency and hope to do more modeling in the future.


I love opera singing and enjoy entertaining people with my voice, because music is an international language that can make a difference in everyone's life! I've sang at Madison Square Gardens twice and at several other events throughout the years.
