“My First Sentence was past the age of 16.” We bring the most interesting and sensational story of the day about a young guy named Christopher.
When Christopher is asked to share his experience of what led him to utter the words, he goes back in time and shares his traumatised experience of being bullied for being autistic.
Do you believe this? Yes, sadly many teens with autism are subjected to bullies at their schools and colleges.
When a reporter questions Christopher how he felt when he uttered something, Christopher recollects he did not have the emotional structure in place to showcase the emotions. This highlights the struggles that people with autism face.
Christopher says his first sentence in life was “Mum I need a hug!”
Today, Christopher is the first autistic person to ever run for a political office.
When a confident Christopher is asked about his plans for the future, he says he is proud of being an activist and will continue to be. Christopher, when asked about his personal life, discloses he is in love with music and enjoys listening in leisure time.
Further, Christopher says he has a special penchant for karaoke.
He gleefully sings his favorite line “Fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars,” showing his lighter side to the world.
When asked to do it again, Christopher whole-heartedly accepts the request and sings a different line for all of us.
“Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars.”
Christopher indeed has a very good singing voice and you will be equally amazed just like us to know he has sung in an opera for nine seasons.
The politician to be has wonderfully thought-provoking words for all of us, irrespective whether one is autistic or not and says, “Don’t be afraid to speak out for yourself, and try to say from your heart what you feel because we are all regular people.”
He says autistic people are tomorrow’s leaders of change and all autistic individuals are no less than a leader within themselves!
