Project Report | Apr 12, 2023
I got my first job!

By Carlos Escalante | Communications Specialist

Dear friends,

Meet Willian, a 22-year-old living in Curitiba, Brazil, who has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). He discovered our POETA Center in 2022 through a friend he met while practicing Judo. Willian has always been passionate about research and technology, creating apps to promote inclusion.

Today, he is part of two technology groups: one for people with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, where he is developing an app to assist them in using smartphones, and another for people with autism and Down syndrome, where he uses a 3D printer to help with motor coordination for playing musical instruments.

Before joining our technology center, Willian faced challenges due to a lack of inclusion and understanding of autism in other environments. Thanks to your support, POETA has brought a new perspective to his life, and he is now focused on his personal and professional development. Most importantly, through POETA DigiSpark, Willian has taken various courses and has even secured his first job.

As for the future, Willian plans to continue his work in technology, participate in groups, and complete his education. He is also focused on improving his social relationships. YOUR support has helped him pursue his passion for technology, improve his skills, and achieve his goals.

Thank YOU for being a part of Willian's success story and helping him create a brighter future!
