Alix Generous has big ideas, but she hasn’t always been able to communicate them to others. Her Asperger’s syndrome was misdiagnosed for many years and it has taken great courage and persistence to overcome her challenges. Alix thinks differently, but she has learned that this can be an important part of solving complex problems. Still a university student, she is involved in scientific research, has spoken at the UN, and her company Autism Sees has released the app Podium to help people with Autism Spectrum Disorder develop communication skills. One of Alix Generous’s big ideas is that we need all the creativity and intellect we can muster to solve our problems, so need to build a culture that accepts mental diversity so everyone can share their talents.
