CA QamQomics My name is Qamdhym (pronounced "Camden") I am a Freshman at Antelope High School. I am an artist, an athlete, a musician and an Autism Spectrum Advocate. I was diagnosed as being part of the autism spectrum in the 2nd grade. I used drawing as a way of "stimming" during my elementary years, as it calmed me and allowed me to focus on the teacher while instructing. When I went to middle school I used comic strips to express my feelings on how I interacted with the world. From these years of drawing was born comic strip characters Asp and Norm. I have recently self published an educational booklet, entitled, Asp and Norm Educate on Autism Spectrum Acceptance. The booklet includes comic strip characters Asp, who represents individuals on the autism spectrum and Norm,who represents those not on the spectrum. The interaction between Asp and Norm represent how simple and fun a relationship with someone on the spectrum can be with understanding and Acceptance.
