It was a blessing to have Jamiel Owens, the founder and founder/host of the Ausome Show and incredible advocate for the autism community. 

Jamiel's son was diagnosed with autism when he was 3 years old, and in this episode, we talk about his family, when his son was diagnosed, the challenges he faced as a father. We also get into discussion around having a spiritual foundation, ensuring you're communicating with your local police department and the things his son has taught him. Most of all, he provides incredible insight, perspective and advice for all parents out there, particularly remembering that everyone is unique in their way, to embrace who you are! 

Jamiel is an incredible father, focused on his purpose to support the autism community, especially the black and brown community - to be the voice people can relate to, and provide support. He has many accollades of being published multiple times in Autism Parnet magazine and Next for Autism publications. He is also the co-host of the Ben and Jay Show and is working with the police departments to bring awareness to autism, incorporating awareness in their training. 

Not only that, Jamiel is a volunteer fire fighter, a former corrections officer and you guessed it...a GREAT DAD! 

I am just so honored to have met Jamiel and having the privilege to talk to him. I hope this episode inspires you, provides you with a different perspective and gives you hope.
