Jenny is speaking about her Fantasy Fiction Trilogy, Dysnomia her second book of the series that has just been published on May 1st, 2021. Also, she is a 2D and 3D Animator and am doing a short-animated film and also doing a script for her Trilogy books, making them into movies. All this and a self-advocate for Autism.
Jenny is a self-advocate for Autism and shines her light on other Autistics and to go after their dreams and lets anyone say they can’t. She won the 2020 Self Advocate Award at the Autism BC Awards. And the money she was given for winning was $1000.00 and I gave half of it to a Single Mom and two Autistic boys and the other half of it I gave to Spectrum Productions who work with Autistic individuals.
I had a documentary filmed about me through Telus Optik not long ago and again to shine a positive for Autism and give others hope and see anything is possible. To believe in yourself.
