This is a project made by me and the student government of my college; Champlain College Saint-Lambert outside Montreal, Canada.
It was a three-month project to put together and publish a speech about Asperger’s syndrome. I decided to work on it because I felt that if I were to speak out loud what my troubles are, by just one-on-one instead of a whole group, no one’s really going to listen to me. An audience grows emphasis and importance; that’s why I did this as a speech.
It was an extensive process. The rough screenplay I wrote took me almost 20 days and some of my homework was even at risk. However, I pulled it through because if I didn’t present this in the first place, I knew I was going to cry and suffer from social depression a lot more. The original screenplay was adapted to an e-book on Lulu.com.
Our final presentation was on May 1st, 2013. It was so awesome even though the preparation was tough. But I did satisfy most of my audience and earned a lot of applause at the end.
Anyway, I made this just for the sake of sharing it with friends of my own because I want those who didn’t came to the speech to fully understand that I don’t want to live in a stigma anymore or not be in a situation where I’m not invited over enough for outings, or what else in the stigma.
Well, enjoy reading the PowerPoint! (Sorry about the quality; if you download the full PowerPoint, you’ll eventually see better quality with not much pixelization.)
