Jacob O'Connor

My name is Jacob O'Connor. I currently attend Olmsted Falls High School and work as an intern with Voices of Change 2018.

I was diagnosed at a very early age on the autism spectrum. Fortunately, I was both on the higher-functioning end of the spectrum and blessed with parents who were able to handle the challenges that came with raising me.

When I was approached to assist Voices of Change 2018, I saw what the organization could do to help those less fortunate than me, such as those with more intrusive disabilities, those in less supportive environments, and those who have been taken advantage of because of their differences.  I hope that my time volunteering with this organization can help make a positive difference in these people's lives.
