Noi’s Story – My Best Friend

Colorful school chairs and tables

Best FriendsI will always remember meeting Lauren, my very best friend from middle school. The school cafeteria was crowded with all the students eating lunch together in many groups. I noticed her eating alone separately from everyone else. I went to join her for lunch and she really appreciated me giving her company since no one wanted to be with her because she was blind. Being autistic, I have always and still have empathy, especially for people who are different. We both have accepted each other for who we are and are still best friends.
