I started my involvement with the Project in 2005 after meeting their founder, Molly Ola Pinney. Like many professionals, I had very little knowledge of the plight of children with autism in the developing world. This cause had simply never come to my attention. When I met Molly, I was inspired by her drive and passion, and immediately looked for ways to get involved. I took my first trip to Ghana in 2008, followed by another 6 months later. To say that these trips were life-changing is a huge understatement. Working with the Global Autism Project has helped me grow professionally and personally in more ways than I can count.

Seven years later, Molly's drive and passion for this cause still inspire me. The work that she had done is amazing and yet she never rests on her laurels. The only possible way I could thank her is to say, as they say in Ghana, "medasi pa, Global Autism Project"
