RE: My Book Population One
Thanks for taking a minute to learn about my book. A big reason why I wrote my book was to help people understand what it's like to have autism. I believe that most people don't realize that individuals with autism have a tremendous gift to give. I am 19 and I've been blessed to have autism my entire life... I actually call it awesome'ism.
I was diagnosed with autism at age 2. I communicated with a series of frustrated noises and physically "acting out". I started forming words at age 6; I was not able to speak in full sentences until I was 12.
I've been called a retard, dumb, and disabled. I've been bullied, picked on, and made fun of. They put me in "special" classes, and told me that I should not expect to reach my goals. I could not understand why people were so cruel simply because I was different. I process information and see the world differently.
I have chosen to accept my label of autism, not as a disability, but as an extraordinary ability.
I wrote my book, so that those without autism could understand how my autistic mind works. I would like to give you a front row seat to my life, mind, and my special way of looking at the world.
I am in a unique position to help others understand what it's like to have autism. I know what it's like to be trapped inside myself.
Over the years, and with a lot of help from my teachers, I now have the ability to speak. It's now my responsibility to share my insights with others. Hopefully my experience will help others affected by autism, to find their voice as well.
I am on a mission to help people understand Autism. I am on a mission to overcome the label that many with autism have suffered with for years.
I hope that my writing, and the 50 chapters in my book will help people better understand those with autism; I would like to help them to have a better life.
I stand for those who do not have a literal voice. I know what its like to not be able to speak. If you would like to understand a little bit more about autism, from someone that has it. Please buy my book. Join me on my mission to help all people co‐exist together as a Population of One.

I have included these chapters so you can get an inside look into my mind. I purposely want you to know, to understand, to learn how I think. Also, I have purposely requested that my editor keep my book in “my voice”.
It is “cool” and “different” and “unique” and perhaps you have never read a book such as this. You will see firsthand how I (and tens of thousands of others) with the unique gift of autism think differently.
I have been called a retard. I have been bullied. I have been a victim of others’ limiting beliefs about my abilities, and yet, I have become the victor in my life. I have become stronger because of the personal attacks, and more confident in my life as others have placed limitations on me. As a result, I am dedicating my life to serving and inspiring others who are different so they also can achieve their goals and blossom into the people they are true capable of becoming. I am in the process of achieving my goals. I have the unique abilities of autism. I graduated from high school as a published author, and now a public speaker. It has been a difficult journey; there were many setbacks and obstacles along the way. It is hard to put yourself out there for others in the world to ridicule. There were naysayers who tried to convince me to accept less and not pursue my life’s biggest passions. There were non‐believers who ridiculed me for my differences. My challenge was to turn their disbelief in my ability into fuel for the driving force that allows me to succeed and achieve.
People with autism are born with talents that very few others have. Perhaps you have yet to understand and accept autism. I feel your pain, I have walked in your shoes, I can empathize with you. It took me a long time as well. I did not even know that I saw the world differently that other typically developing people. I felt like I didn't need anybody, and needed to isolate myself from everyone. I still struggle with those feelings today.
This book can be described as many things. It can be a journal, a diary (not really), a survival kit, and a guide for everyone with or without autism.
I dedicate this book to all those who are different, unique, and terrific. Just imagine if we were all the same? It really wouldn’t be very fun, would it? I also want to dedicate this to all of the parents and teachers of the world. They bring an awesome impact on kids all around. This book is also dedicated to the children of the world. They are the best they can be, no matter what anyone says.
Enjoy the book.
