Sandy Yim is a 28 year old female on the spectrum who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome when she was in the 2nd grade. Sandy was an inner city teacher until 2008 and was deeply passionate about her role as an urban educator; however, she decided that it was time to turn her focus toward something that was a better match as it pertains to her personal health needs and ASD issues. Sandy has since then been blogging about adult life with Asperger's Syndrome. She is currently developing what she envisions as an illustrated guide to job skills for Aspies which will be a combination of writings and illustrations by individuals on the spectrum. As an Asian-American, Sandy has observed the stigma which is sometimes associated with an autism diagnosis within her native community. She shared with us how this has affected her personally as well as her Asian-American family and friends.
