Autistic Teen Starts Campaign to Launch T-Shirt Business

15-year-old Hannah Greenberg has a dream, and she’s using the internet to help make it come true. Greenberg, who describes herself as a “teenage girl with autism who loves fashion,” is working to create a new T-shirt line through Spectrum Designs. The company is close to the teen’s heart, as it is composed entirely of employees with autism. This is a huge deal, as 90% of individuals with autism are currently unemployed. She hopes the shirts themselves will also promote and inspire others with the same disorder.

Using gofundme.com, Hannah has set her goal of $5,000 to cover start-up costs for the T-shirt line.

“I created the A-Z series; it’s characterized by my zany curly hair coupled with my love of the alphabet and my favorite color green,” she told HuffPost. “I always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer and a portion of the sales from each T-shirt will help employ adults with autism.” Click here to learn more about her business.

We’re super inspired by Hannah’s spirit and will to chase her dreams. We’d love to hear about your dreams and what inspires you in the comments below!

      I think that Project Inspired said that because Autism is a hurdle. It presents so many challenges that many people never face. So it’s amazing and inspiring that this girl overcame the odds and did something like this. If God can work through her even through her challenges, then He can work through us no matter what we are facing.

      I loved the story! It was incredible.

        I forgot to mention that my dream is to sell enough crochet hats to build a well in Asia through Gospel for Asia.
