Abraham Ros De la Fuente, a 43-year-old Spaniard with Asperger’s condition (ASD).
Abraham has a degree in Computer Network Security and a degree in Psychology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, as well as a Certification in Marketing from the Anahuac University in Mexico. Nonconformist, demanding and obsessive about control, led a life without being able to “fit” in society without realizing that the “happiness” of the human being does not have to be linked to “fit” with everything and everyone.
After being diagnosed at the age of 33, my life changed completely, because, as I remember, I always understood and accepted myself; that is the first change we must make to move forward. Today I am the father of a 6-year-old girl, and that is one of the hardest jobs for a father with ASD, to know how to always share and remember those special moments.
Three years ago, I decided to open my blog: www.abrahamros.mx . The blog explains what it is like to live in a “world” with ASD. This blog also led me to publish writings in various newspapers and magazines in Spain, as well as conferences, workshops, seminars, all in relation to autism.
I work as a Public Relations Director, I am an activist, disseminator, and defender of human rights for people with ASD. A lecturer, living and working in Mexico for the OTEA autism association trying to spread the message to families, professionals, teachers, doctors, and anyone who wants to understand how autism is lived, how autism hurts, but also how autism is enjoyed.
