I joined the program as Luv Michael is genuinely unique and supports individuals who aren’t fairly represented in the workforce. As someone who has an unseen disability, working with Luv Michael was heartwarmingly fulfilling. The Granologists are an incredible group of people who have so much potential, creativity, and talent. Autism should never cause them to be devoid of their dreams. Luv Micheal is crafting reality from the wishes of each of the granologists. After joining and completing the level 1 volunteer requirements last November, I wanted to continue working with the organization as a level 2 volunteer. I created and led my own global team, becoming the first volunteer that recruited members from all over the world. Many members of my team were inspired to become level 2 volunteers, and I guided them throughout the process even after my requirements were fulfilled. After noticing a need for video explanations, especially for individuals that thrive on repetition and need time to process information, I took the initiative to make short clips explaining requirements for my team. I shared this communicational content with the rest of the organization. This further enhanced the experience of all volunteers at Luv Michael. These videos are part of the volunteer manual now. Additionally, I volunteered as a beta tester for an app that allowed us to participate in a global autism walk. I walked 120+ miles. I hope that through my small contributions, Luv Michael continues to foster a career for adults they are supporting.
