Reluctant autistic influencer Aurora’s whole life has been shared online as part of her and her mother Emma’s social media.
Aurora is now concerned about the impact of having her most vulnerable moments on the internet will have on her future. Aurora has also started engaging with the #ActuallyAutistic community who are educating her about her autistic identity. Emma refuses to take the content down, leading Aurora to take her narrative into her own hands.
