Nicholas Haugh is a high school senior with autism. He was recently highlighted as Teen of the Week in Lancaster PA. The Octorara High School student hopes that he will be able to encourage other teens with autism to do the best they can. Haugh explained, “Everyone has a mountain to climb. I'd like to tell them their mountain is a little bigger. I'd like to tell them there are people who have climbed bigger mountains, and that they can climb theirs too." Haugh has used his talents to volunteer for Special Olympics and will soon enter college to study psychology and writing. He hopes to be able to write about what his future clients will be going through in their life with autism.
