The autistic girl who has a doctorate in psychology has said she’s ready to become a therapist.
A video released by Autism UK shows the teenager sitting on a couch in a classroom.
“I don’t know how you could say no to me,” she says.
“This is my future.”
The video has been viewed over 100,000 times.
The teenager was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and has had difficulties in socialising with others.
She has been on a number of autism-related therapy sessions, including one with a specialist psychologist.
She now uses an app called Autism Finder to help her find friends and socialise.
“It’s like I’m in the right place at the right time,” she said.
I feel more comfortable with myself and I feel I can communicate more freely. “
My therapy has been great.
You don’t have to be autistic to be comfortable with yourself.”
