Sheffield entrepreneur Adam Bradford has launched a campaign to help youngsters affected by autism conditions.
The 20-year-old, from Mosborough – who has Asperger syndrome himself – is to visit cities around the UK over the next three months to give help and advice to 30 others with similar conditions on the autistic spectrum.
The aim will be to develop their careers and provide inspiration for their futures.
Adam said: “People think autism is a condition which holds people back.
“However, I’ve been supported and encouraged by the right people now and that makes a magical difference.
“It’s time I made that difference for many others and I’m honoured to be able to do so this year.”
Adam said he had overcome his condition to succeed at a new school shortly before he took his GCSEs – managing to pass 27 at grades A* to C.
