This week, we welcome Julia, 27, from Austria, for a conversation touching on a variety of things, including moving from the Dominican Republic to Austria at the age of 5, the differences between living in a city and a small town, travelling, special interests, self-diagnosing with Autism at the age of 20, job interviews, working with a job coach, family dynamic, "coming out" as Autistic to family and friends, support networks, support groups, starting a local support group, masking, how Autism is viewed culturally in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, versus England, the USA, and Canada, Autism awareness and acceptance, viewing Autism as an illness, Autistic people in history, and if you were a fruit or vegetable, what kind of fruit or vegetable would you be? (Ha! Ha!)
This is the link to the study on Autistics and job interviews that Julia mentioned in the show:
