Attending high school can be an intimidating experience; being a teenager with a disability can make it even more challenging. Shivam is a young man with ASD who attends Folsom High School and lives with this reality.
He tends to be an anxious guy, but he’s also very social and outgoing. These were the qualities that supported his nomination and win for Freshman Homecoming Prince!
Although his anxiety prevented him from attending all of the homecoming festivities, he was able to summon the courage to attend the big game and walk across the football field with a big smile on his face, waiving to everyone in the stands.
