Rosie King has inspired a generation, seeing autism through fresh eyes. ‘My Autism and Me’, the BBC documentary she presented, won a Royal Television Society award, and her TEDMED talk has been viewed by more than 1.7 million people. When faced with what she saw as “one of the most exciting and one of the most petrifying concepts on my mind – The looming future of leaving home to go to university and start my life as an independent functioning adult”, Rosie looked positively.
Rosie didn’t “want to be Peter Pan”, so she prepared herself and started to use Brain in Hand.
She felt it was “just like I have that older Rosie in my pocket and I can get her up for advice whether I’m just a little uneasy or having a full-blown panic attack” and successfully settled into university life.
