Jean Williams is an autistic woman who grew up the only child of brilliant parents who never sought a diagnosis for her, seeing her only as difficult, problematic and an under-achiever. Diagnosed as a young adult, Jean struggled for years with issues of self-esteem, and never even hoped to find self-love. An unfulfilling career as a Software Engineer, and difficulties making and keeping friendships added to her view of herself as a failure. Realizing finally that she never had to live up to the ideals of her parents - and looking to find and live only toward her own ideals has finally helped her to live her a life of happiness.
