I met Temple Grandin tonight!

These are my notes from her lecture. She signed them at the bottom. When I showed her my notes, she asked me if I was doing art professionally, and it was REALLY GRATIFYING to be able to say yes.

She’s a perceptive lady, and definitely a character. She can pick up if someone is on spectrum/neuroatypical easily, and it’s fascinating. I’m reasonably sure that’s why she asked me if I was drawing professionally. I wasn’t even broadcasting “HEY, I HAVE ADHD” tonight. I think it’s because she’s really nonverbally sensitive, but that’s just a hunch. 

She’s a fantastic lecturer, and it was very exciting to meet her! Her big points of the evening were essentially pursue your interests, develop your skills, and get a job.
