About Rosie King

When she was nine years old, doctors confirmed Rosie King’s self-diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome. With two younger siblings on the autistic spectrum and with additional needs, Rosie had a burning desire to help make the world a more tolerant place for autistic people ever since she was a young girl.

She found the opportunity to do so when her family was invited to do a local news segment on her mother’s children’s books, which featured Rosie’s illustrations. Her lack of inhibition made her a natural presenter, and she was asked to host BBC Newsround’s special program “My Autism and Me,” bringing her a much wider audience and an Emmy Kid’s Award. Rosie’s TED Talk, “How Autism Freed Me to be Myself” has amassed almost 3 million views worldwide. She is also a prominent contributor to the “Pablo” TV series, was once sent a typewriter for Tom Hanks, and is currently writing her first novel, after graduating with a first in Creative Writing.
