People who are different may sometimes be unsettling. However, Kinga Hope Csikszentmihalyi reminds her audience to take a breath and get to know people with autism, their unique lives, and all they offer to the world.
Kinga is a sophomore at Sacred Heart Cathedral. She loves soccer, photography, music, and solving the problems she sees in the world. Ever since her little brother was diagnosed with autism, she has had a passion for changing people’s views on the disorder. Through all this, she has been able to create a great relationship with her brother and with other amazing people in the autism community. Kinga believes that raising awareness about the beauty of autism is the first step to opening up opportunities for all people who are on the autism spectrum.
