  1. Brilliant and important message, which is both warmly and dynamically delivered. In her speech, Faith says; "Please don't call me normal" and "You don't have to be normal, you can be extraordinary." Truly profound words, we definitely all need to redefine our understanding of "NORMAL" and come to accept all people - whether autistic or otherwise - because everyone has a lot to offer this world.
