National Leadership Program, Summer 2016
Timothy Young was a Policy Apprentice at RespectAbility who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome during his childhood and was able to take advantage of excellent programs for special education throughout his time in primary and secondary education.
Originally hailing from California, Young moved to Washington, D.C. to attend American University, where he was a dual major in history and international relations. His time at American University was rife with many opportunities for education, both in and out of a formal academic environment. Young traveled to both South Africa and Russia during his undergraduate career, fulfilling lifelong interests and desires to visit both countries and learn about their histories, their cultures and the challenges both nations face in the modern day.
