I am 23 years old and have a 21-year-old brother with ADHD and Autism. His name is Michael. Making Authentic Friendships (MAF) is also my brother’s initials. He inspired this initiative. He is very lonely due to his lack of social skills and the ability to make friends.
I just recently finished my MBA at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, but reside on Long Island. I am passionate about bettering the lives of those with autism and other special needs and plan to dedicate my entire life to doing so.
