A young woman on the autism spectrum struggles with all around her until the kindness of one person changes her life.
Christina is on the autism spectrum but is misdiagnosed as a child and grew up without the support she desperately needed. She struggles mildly with daily social interactions and this has impacted her severely, causing her to lose friends as well as family, and impacts her confidence emotionally and professionally. Christina sees the world differently than others and we get to peek inside of her experience for brief moments throughout he interactions. She meets a woman at work who becomes a friend and with this person’s understanding and acceptance, Christina is able to foster the self-confidence that she needed to move forward and go for the opportunities she was too insecure to apply for before.
