My Life So Far

by Amil D. DuPree

Amil has the title of "editorial assistant" for the CIL News. It's not honorary -- he earned it. In the last several months the editor has worked with him, Amil has proven himself to be a wonderful volunteer and human being.

He has not only intelligence, but wisdom as well. He not only likes people, he cares about them. He not only has warmth, he radiates it.

Amil sops up information like a sponge, having learned sophisticated word processing and publishing programs in almost no time at all.

His dedication, intelligence, and unfailing good humor make him the kind of person staff and other volunteers love to work with -- and grateful to know.

Amil spoke at the "Autism Society of America" National Conference in Orlando, July 10th, 1997, and participated on a panel of young adults with autism.
