Non verbal autism
Hello, my name is Beatriz Lemus, better known as Bea. I have moderate autism, I am non-verbal, my communication is through an application on a tablet. Life for me has not been easy, not only because of all that having autism implies, but also that I have hypersensitivity in all my senses, which makes the world, that is so noisy and stimulating, very torturous for me. However, despite my shortcomings, I have several things going for me, an IQ of 195 and a born musical talent. Since I was 3 years old, I already performed concerts on the piano. I performed my first concert as a soloist of an orchestra when I was 7 years old. However, I abandoned music when I was 14 years old because I decided to face a much bigger challenge, which was to study medicine. With a lot of effort, I graduated, did a postgraduate degree in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, which I practice, and 3 years ago I decided to return to my piano and give concerts to raise awareness of autism. The idea of life is to try to overcome the infinity of tests or obstacles that it presents us. Be persistent. Be clear about what we want, without forgetting our limitations, but always looking for other solutions that allow us to achieve our goals.
