Hello everyone, I'm Michael McCartney Wind! if you read my previous story, "Who I Am & What I Am", then you'll love the second story based on how I've been doing recently!! This updated story will definitely blow your minds!!

This year, I've completed 5 years of working in the mailroom in New York City! I've made a ton of new friends and co-workers, and I've been working hard to do the best I can!

About a few months ago, I've earned an award after doing my final Young Autism Program dinner performance, singing classic Sinatra for an amazing crowd! And I've also belted out Sinatra's "My Way" at the 2017 Montauk Music Festival!! What did I get at the end, you ask?? A BIG standing ovation!

What kind of hobbies have I been doing? My newest hobbie I've been doing is collecting World of Nintendo action figures, made by Jakks Pacific!! As much as I love Sinatra, I also love Nintendo!!!

I may still have autism, BUT I'm still proud to become the kind of person that I am right now. I'm a hard worker, a great Sinatra singer and a social butterfly! I'm going to give out a message to all of you. Autism is never a good thing, it's never a bad thing. It's just a thing. The more you believe in your kids, support them and give them hope, then they'll have an amazing bright future too! Thank you all for taking the time to read my story on my life! Always remember to fight the mystery!
