Stephanie Singer lives in Norfolk, Virginia. She is a communications specialist at Mercy Medical Angels   (a non-profit that helps save lives with medical transportation for those in need). She is also a passionate autistic self-advocate, whose goal is for the workplace and society to treat autistic individuals with dignity and respect. Some of her special interests include writing, drawing, singing, 1990s/2000s Disney, and Tae Kwon Do. She holds a first-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and works as an instructor at a dojang (martial arts school) in Virginia Beach. Her motto is from a line in her writing: “Anyone can be a hero, just by being themselves.” Stephanie is living proof of this motto - she is autistic and proud of it, and not afraid to show up as her authentic self.
