In this episode, I feature a “Light It Up Blue” presentation I gave in one of my classes at Seton Hall University. In the presentation I discuss when I first felt comfortable about coming out about my autism, World Autism Awareness Day, and how college students can light it up blue on April 2nd. Autism Speaks U, an initiative for college students through Autism Speaks is also highlighted in the video.
