What do you do and why do you do it?
I have been modeling for 5 years now and am a singer, songwriter, guitarist, actor, and much more! I have autism but I showed everyone that it doesn't matter if we have autism, Asperger's Syndrome, or any other disability. We are human beings and we can still make our dreams come true and we can make a difference because we can all be independent everyday!
I am an Autism Ambassador because I spread the word out to the community about Autism Awareness. It benefits me to share it with everyone who wants to know about Autism Awareness and everybody will learn from it! As an autistic male model, I have been showing everyone that it doesn't matter if we have autism or any other disability, we are human beings and we can still make our dreams come true just like I did when I walked in 29 runway shows and host my new YouTube series SNEAKER JAMZ!
Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
I would see myself spreading more messages to the world about Autism Awareness and meeting new people and helping out organizations!
If you could have one superpower to help you further your purpose, what would it be and why? How would you use it?
My superpower would be to spread the word out to the world about Autism Awareness! I would use it because I love to share my story experience to everybody for the benefit of the entire Autism community!
