Hi! ❤️ To formally introduce our project, we are spearheading Project Youths with Autism. Our project title represents youths working hand-in-hand with the Autism community in Singapore! We will be working and empowering children at the Rainbow centre which is a school that specialises in Autism! We want our project to be an upcoming YFC Initiative that spurs greater inclusion of people on the spectrum in schools and in workplaces!

In this post, I will be talking more about our volunteering plans through out our trip.

This week in class, I read something I had never heard before; that Autism is a consciousness disorder. I know a nine-year-old with Autism, and had never heard or read that before; strange huh?
