Alexus Rodriguez

Here is a video of an interview by one of AMSU’s Class of 2018. Alexus Rodriguez is the founder of “I Am Sam,” an organization for autism awareness and advocacy. Through her organization she hopes to be a resource to individuals and families affected by autism. Annually on April 2nd, Alexus hosts an event to raise awareness for autism in honor of world “Light It Up Blue Day.” She also goes to different events to speak about the importance of acceptance of autistic people and how they should not be bullied or harassed. Alexus is currently working on getting her 501 (c)3 so that her organization can be an official non-profit so that she can build it up. Right now she is working on the annual event, looking for volunteers to provide sound, stage and autism resource services.
