Autism is not a disease, and so me and my brother are not patients. It's simply part of one's identity.

It's simply part of one's identity.I'm Autistic and feel proud as Special Olympics has taught me the real meaning of Autism, which is acceptance for all and love for all humans.A love so powerful and strong that has rearranged my heart. I am HOPE AND POSSIBILITY. I am KIND AND LOVING.I am PRIDE AND ACHIEVEMENT. My brother is non-verbal, but he still want to enjoy, go for a ride, and play, and so I make sure to take him along with me. He understands the language of love. I want people to understand that each individual counts regardless of ability or disability. We should spread the message of love for all. This way everybody will get a chance to enjoy their lives and so this will bring peace and harmony in the community. Remember : Choose to Include!!! To spread awareness about autism, I took part in a cycling Event in Islamabad, Pakistan.

REACHING FOR THE SKIES

By Muhammad Haseeb Abbasi

I am a cyclist so decided to show my skills to public to change their mindsets about intellectual disability. The Khunjerab Pass is the highest border-crossing in the world.View Story I am a cyclist so decided to show my skills to public to change their mindsets about intellectual disability. The Khunjerab Pass is the highest border-crossing in the world. Five tunnels with a distance of 7 kilometers are named as Pakistan-China Friendship tunnels. All my years with Special Olympics Pakistan Friendship have been the centered point of my success as earlier I was unable to make friendship with others so lacked in confidence. In my childhood, I visited this place had no fun but this time the story was changed and I had a feeling of accomplishment for all of us!! I am the first Special Olympics cyclist to cross these tunnels. On the way to Khunjerab it is tough for the cyclist because of high altitude. I overcame the lack of oxygen because of my regular training and so was comfortable to cycle for 3 kilometers to reach the top. This proves people with intellectual disability with the help of proper training can develops stronger muscles and bones and can live a happier life.
