The mother of an Autistic son who is now 21 decided to advocate for her son and now has a non for profit “The Autism Project-FLOS (For the Love Of Shaquan)!!
It was 9’oclock pm and I was finally making the call that was long awaited. For 3 months, I’ve been meaning to sit down with this mother who I met at a press event for EducatNYnow.org I had organized. As I was speaking at the podium, I saw this woman with her all white pants and jacket with a purple blouse underneath, black glasses and her hair pulled back in a bun. She sat smack in the middle of the almost empty seats in front of me. I will never forget that moment because her energy was so strong I felt the vibe that she represented something important and she had something to say.
