Rosie King: How autism freed me to be myself
“People are so afraid of variety that they try to fit everything into a tiny little box with a specific label,” says 16-year-old Rosie King, who is bold, brash and autistic. She wants to know: Why is everyone so worried about being normal? She sounds a clarion call for every kid, parent, teacher and person to celebrate uniqueness. It’s a soaring testament to the potential of human diversity.
Rosie gives a short, yet hugely inspiring ‘TED Talk”. She discusses her imagination and being unique. Rosie is becoming an amazing advocate for children with Autism and inspires many.
She was also nominated for a Yorkshire Children of Courage Award in 2014.
