Being autistic, Benjamin has always felt ‘different’ when compared to his peers.

While he wishes he could be treated the same as everyone else, he understands his autism makes him come across differently.

In a poem titled “I Am,” Benjamin tries his best to illustrate what his life is like.

When his father Sonny read it, he was overcome with emotions. Once you read his poem, it’s easy to see why.
