This young man contacted us regarding a uniform. Here is some information about him and why he asked for the uniform.
His name is Conner Miller and currently lives in Elmwood Park, Illinois. He is an autistic student who attends a school called Menta Academy which is a school for kids with autism. He was born and raised in England until the age of 5 when I moved to the US, and have lived in Chicago ever since.
I’m currently 20 years old soon to be 21.I was diagnosed with High functioning Autism and ADHD when I was 3 so I’ve had to deal with it pretty much all my life. I didn’t have a great grade school experience in the sense that most people don’t want to know you once they find out that you’re autistic, so I don’t really have many friends and I’m rather a quiet person. Collecting different team uniforms helps me to express myself and it helps me to be proud of who I am. I wouldn’t say it’s a hobby per-say I’d say it’s more of a passion and a way of being unique.
We are opening a second location and he was put in charge of designing the interior. I really want to incorporate youth sports teams from around the United States into the theming of the school and I was wondering if you had an extra uniform. If you do would you possibly be willing to donate it to make this dream a reality. He heard about us through being on vacation in San Deigo a few months ago and through doing research online.
Sincerely Connor Miller
