It’s such an honour to receive this National Award from Moab – Movimento Orgulho Autista Brasil, as ‘Featured Personality 2015’, in my birth country, Brazil. All who know me personally, know that I would do my job anyways, regardless award or recognising. However, I can’t deny this one is very special to me since I left my country thirty yeas ago to start a new life in Europe.
It really feels like coming home. It feels like being away from Homeland had a meaning after all.
Thank you, FernandoCotta Moab Autismo (president of Moab Brasil).
Thank you, all members who voted for me and for Autimates.
I would like to ask your permission to share the price with the ones I most admire – and who made it all happen: my beloved autistics and their families, who are my ongoing inspiration.
