Why was it necessary to say she was autistic in the title? Was this to give her an advantage over other competitors who are not autistic? Are you saying that because she is autistic that she otherwise wouldn’t stand a chance of winning?

Awe I appreciate all the votes its about telling our story on diversity I was born with autism at the age of 3 years old didn’t talk until age 6. but now a days i am a miracle and a inspirational to all but actually suffer with anxiety these days from what’s going on in the world nothing to do with my autism. People think that but it’s not the case. But anyways thank you for writing my recipe
