Director's Statement

I created My Sister, Harper in order to shine light on an issue not often discussed: the lack of opportunities for people with both mental and physical disabilities to live an independent and enriched life as they enter adulthood. I have a 19-year-old brother with Autism and something that is always on my mind is how will his learning and growth continue after he graduates from his high school. Let’s give more of our attention to neurodiversity inclusion!
