Asma Ehtesham is a six year old girl studying at the Kyari School Moradabad, suffering from a mild case of Autism. Coming from a middle class family with three older children, Asma’s parents did not expect their child to suffer from such a rare disease, but neglecting any form of social boycott their family supported the School and decided to treat Asma with the same amount and sometimes a little more love and affection than her other siblings. Asma is a special child with many different and admirable qualities normal people aspire to have, this is what made me grow a strange liking for Asma. Asma is an affectionate, kind, innocent and helping girl who cares about everyone, in her own way. After being with children and people who suffer from such disease but always look at the bright side of life made me realize how we always ask for more and are never satisfied with what we have. Asma taught me how to be a better person and to accept things the way they are and be happy with whatever I have. Always be happy is what these children ask us to be, and being with them made me happy. Asma is now a little sister to me and will always be. Whoever reads this I hope you can be happy with your life and pay heed to the important things of life and be more like Asma, because she is quite the role model.
