Christiana Koch advocates for people with disabilities – Daily 49er

At age 8, Christiana Koch was diagnosed with autism, but she felt different from her peers before then. She didn’t understand why the classmates avoided her, and felt being homeschooled already made her strange enough.

“I was the weird one among the weird ones,” Koch said. “That says something.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Koch, a senior sociology major, has only recently began sharing her story. Before, she was afraid of what people would think of her after they found out she’s autistic. She hopes to inspire other students with disabilities and show them they deserve the same opportunities as everyone else.
