I was lucky to meet Tim Harris at the Nebraska Autism Conference in Kearney, Nebraska. Tim was born in 1986 with Down Syndrome. His favorite quote is, “If you can dream it, you can do it” from Walt Disney. He always dreamed of opening a restaurant and in 2010 he did. Working at his own foundation Big Heart Enterprises, Tim now travels around the world to spread his love and inspire others to break down barriers and get rid of stereotypes. His hugs have reached everyone from Stevie Wonder, to the President Barack Obama, to me.
Tim’s goal is to help individuals with intellectual disabilities start businesses through entrepreneurship and believes that with the right support anyone can fulfill their dreams. It is great to meet someone who believes the same as I do. If you would like to know more about Tim check out the link.
