An Advocate is somebody who speaks on behalf of other people. A self-Advocate is somebody who speaks for themselves. I am both. I speak with my own voice as a way of determining my own outcomes for myself. I also speak on behalf of the a community. I do not singly speak for the this community, nor do i fully represent them, but my opinions generally fall into line with the majority of the active community, so i am entitled to be able to speak with an element of authority on what the community as a whole wants to achieve.
The Community i advocate for is the Autistic Community. I self-Advocate for my Autistic self.
