Haley Moses, 24, has become the first autistic candidate to pass her bar exams and become an attorney in Florida, United States.
Born with autism, Moses' parent realised their daughter's condition while she was still a little girl. She had trouble with expressing herself in words despite being brilliant at non-verbal talents. Although she could not express herself, she had other talents that showed she was an intelligent child.
Moses was a diligent learner of non-verbal skills and could solve 100-piece jigsaw puzzles at just 3 years of age. She carried her brilliance and honed her skills as she grew older. Interestingly, a year after her diagnosis, she started speaking and was transferred to mainstream classroom.
Now, she has aced the Florida bar exams and is set to begin a career as an attorney in America. The future is indeed bright for the young lady.
