Meet Zack – He Didn’t Let A Mental Illness Keep Him From Achieving His Dreams

One evening I was hanging out on Twitter and started talking to Zack about my toddler’s love for coloring and drawing.  After talking to Zack, he shared with me his story about “Taking Care of Business – Mental Illness is Not a Deterrent“.  At the age of 16, Zack is working on becoming an entrepreneur and using his gifts and talents to make his characters a regular household name similar to the Simpsons.  As a child Zack had trouble in school and was labeled with pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Strep and Tourette’s Syndrome.  At this point school became very difficult for him and he was often bullied.  By the time enter the 8th grade, Zack was finally paired with a great “inclusion” special aide who recognized his symptoms and got him the help that he needed.
