Addressing a gap

By ShwiftyKat · Apr 10, 2020 ·
  1. I recently switched careers from insurance (8 years) to becoming a hair stylist. Growing up people always turned to me for this, and I knew this is something I should persue because of my naturally artistic and giving nature. is the one of the top things that i could always do for free and not in it for the money. The face to face social communication part is really challenging and I'm finding a lot of blogs online from the asd community about the horrors of getting a haircut and services are mostly tailored to children.



    One of my new missions in life is to bridge the gap for us. I want to submit for a $5000 grant my company offers but i need feedback, input, and help from asd community cuz I have to submit a YouTube video by May 31 2020. I will use this to purchase tools, accomodations, and reserve most of this money if received to pay for the service of any person w/asd who wants to help me with this mission. Maybe i could convince the company I work for to open up to the options and allow their products to be used in certain home salons for our special accommodations we needing.



    If you could think of one thing that would make a difference, what would it be? Anyone who wants to be in my video is more than welcome to and share their story..good and bad. Thanks for reading,...am I crazy to think this is a possibility??
