Jeremiah Ihoma

The more people become educated, the more autism-friendly the world will become.  That’s the message Jeremiah Iheoma has been spreading for most of his young life.

At age 9, Jeremiah wrote My Super Life With Autism, a children’s book that mirrors his life and promotes an understanding and acceptance of children who are on the Autism Disorder Spectrum. Fast forward six years, and Jeremiah is a flourishing 9th grader, making many friends and rocking his freshman year at Canandaigua Academy.

Jeremiah regularly speaks at local events and in the media about the challenges people with autism face and how he has overcome those challenges. He wants everyone to know no matter how differently abled a person is, with the right supports anyone can thrive.  

And that is what makes Jeremiah One of a Kind.
