Molly is a former elementary teacher. After her first child, she chose to stay home and raise her children. Now she has taken up the call for social activism, raising awareness for individuals with special needs. This stemmed from her youngest child who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. She believes we can do so much more for future generations in terms of education and bridging the gap between those families with special needs individuals and those who do not. She founded Project: Just Like You as a way to show how individuals with special needs are just the same as everyone else. They enjoy the same interests and activities as their peers. The idea is to change hearts and minds of a society by focusing on what we have in common as people through dialogue. It serves as a bridge to unite families. It is to break down stigmas, barriers, and prejudices. And ultimately help us all grow in inclusion, understanding, and kindness. Project: Just Like You has a global focus, encompassing individuals and their stories from around the world.
