Proud To Be Me
"My name is Tiffany. I'm 16 years old. I was diagnosed with autism when I was 11 or 12 years old."
"When it comes to autism I have mixed feelings because they have their pros like I'm very creative, but they have their cons too, like I don't sleep that well at night."

The National Autistic Society (NAS) in the UK was founded in 1962, and has since worked toward providing support, education, and training for people with autism in order to give them the ability to live independent, empowered lives.
One of NAS's programs, called Artrack, provides special training and studio facilities to established and emerging artists on the autism spectrum. "Art benefits people with autism," says Artrack's art coordinator Darrell Hawkins. "It allows them to express themselves, and create something they can be proud of."
