I was diagnosed at 34 with autism and I grew up impoverished.

I was the first person in my family to graduate college and the only one to get a graduate degree.

I was a medical accountant until I succumbed to my PTSD, C-PTSD, unmanaged autism, and suicidal ideation depression level disabilities.

America is behind in a number of ways, from the social safety net, to climate change, to social justice.

We can do more than catch up. 

We can set the world standards in humanitarian aid and the sciences.

And I aim to draft the legislation to make that possible if you give me that opportunity.
