My name is Joseph Michael McKeown my disability is autism. I am 15 years old and live in Glencoe Illinois. I go to New Trier High School and I am an artist. Autism makes me unique in many different ways. I like to talk shows, create video games and sometimes I can’t control myself. My autism affects my brain. When I was 2 years old I was diagnosed with autism. I am not sure why I have autism. Nobody is sure why people have autism. I feel a little angry that I feel different.
