Sydney Raley is a teen with Autism, who works at a McD’s in Minnesota.  She saw a customer choking and instead of thinking about her own safety, she jumped THROUGH the drive-thru window to get to her.

She said, “I never felt like having autism was a setback,” Raley told TODAY. “It’s kind of like a pair of glasses: specially-made lenses to see the world in a unique way. If there was anything to gain from this experience, at the very least I want people to know that autism isn’t this scary monster — it’s just a more prominent way of showing that no two people are alike.” Read more about Sydney HERE.
