Lynne Soraya Column: Living Different The rewards and difficulties of being different
Lynne Soraya (a pseudonym) learned early the impact of expectations and the reality of the diversity of the human experience. A child with an unusual profile of skills and abilities, she was blessed with excellent teachers who saw through her differences and struggles to the ability beneath. It was only in adulthood, after years of difficulties and confusion, that she learned that her differences had a name: Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism.
Today, she is a woman who wears many hats. As a disability advocate and writer, she works to build awareness to the issues affecting those who do not fit into the mold society labels as “typical.” In her day job, she’s a technological professional in the Fortune 500 who also works to drive diversity and inclusion in a corporate context.
