    My Autism Greeting


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     autismshines, of Kelowna, Canada, says she's a walking encyclopedia. 'Sometimes usless facts depending on what's being talked about,' says the 38-year-old freelance autism advocate. 'And I am very creative with art.' She loves being talented in these ways and also enjoys bowling and video games. 'I want the world to know that autism is not a tragedy, end of the world, etc., but one of a journey of learning and growing,' she says.
