On Monday, April 1, Cameron Kirkpatrick, 17, Newburgh, N.Y., visited SUNY New Paltz and shared his stories about living with Asperger’s Syndrome in Student Union Building 100. The event was hosted by the campus organization, Autism Speaks U. Kirkpatrick delivered a heartfelt and funny depiction of his personal growth, development and the obstacles he overcame. He also briefly spoke about growing up with lesbian parents. Kirkpatrick’s mother, KC, shared a few stories as well and Kirkpatrick closed the event with his rendition of “You Got It” by Roy Orbison on guitar. Free pizza and other refreshments were available to guests who mingled with Kirkpatrick and his mother after the event.
