Eden Prairie, Minnesota

Brianna Pezon is a 24 year old woman who is currently six months away from obtaining her Master’s degree in social work. She received her Bachelor’s degree as one of the top students in her cohort, and received her high school diploma like any other young adult, but she knew she was different. Ever since she could remember, making friends was difficult, she did not understand social situations, and faced horrendous bullying and harassment that did not end until half way through her bachelor program. Brianna always knew she was not “normal” like the rest of her peers, and it took 16 years for someone to let her know why. Brianna has Asperger’s disorder. After this life-changing moment, she was finally able to begin the journey of identifying herself in a world that was foreign. This journey of acceptance, hope, self-awareness, self-love, and acceptance of others has taught her more about the world outside of herself then she could have ever known when she took that first step. She continues on this journey after many years of hard work but has inspired many others along the way by sharing her story.

She has presented her story to many through events such as PEACE talks and TEDxUWRiverFalls. Through these events she was able to begin her new journey of sharing her story and celebrate the stories of those on the Autism Spectrum to allow them to have their own voice. She also strives to provide education to those who have not been able to understand the pain, joy, suffering, and hope that comes with having a very different view on this incomprehensible world.

Update #3 - Call for Story Submissions! July 11, 2016

Hello!

I apologize if you are getting this message twice.

I so deeply appreciate all of the support you have given me throughout the creation of this book!  I am just finishing up my last graduate school semester in order to receive my Masters Degree in Social
Work so I have been very busy since this process began. Thankfully I only have a short amount of time left, and am now able to begin focusing on the development of this book!

Before the big news, I also wanted to let you know that I have not solidified a
publisher that will assist in the creation of this book as of yet, but I have many interested parties and opportunities for contact so I am hopeful that the publishing process will begin soon!

Now for the big news- I am beginning to collect stories to put into Autism Is Not My Name!

The form attached for you if you are on the spectrum, and other loved ones or friends that you know that are anywhere on the Autism Spectrum of Disorders to document one or more life stories that have a significant chance of landing in the final copy of Autism is Not My Name! This is a call for one and all story submissions from those living with ASD, so please tell and forward this email to your friends, family, neighbors, school buddies, teachers and so on in order for me to get as many
stories as possible for the creation of this book.

If you are interested, please follow this link to the Google form and provide a story under a specific area such as everyday life, friendships etc. Before you submit your story, please make sure to add your contact
information so I can get a hold of you as this begins to move forward.

https://docs.google.com/a/umn....

Please let me know if you have any trouble with the link, and I will do what I can to make sure I can get your story!

Thank you all again for your support, and I am very excited to read your stories!

Happy Writing!
