It’s A Win-Win For Ghana! Annette Addo-Yebo Represents All Autistics With Passion

It is a wish of every parent to witness the success of a child and believe in their dreams as well.

Apart from being a very bright student, Annette Addo-Yobo has always had affection for children with ‘different abilities’, and because of that, strived to become an advocate in autism.

Back in the days she had the Miss Dallas and Miss Southlake titles, the dream for advocacy did not end there, as it registered again with the Miss Texas competition.

Being a Ghanaian by birth, Annette spent time shuffling between Canada and America, undergoing training and growing up.

In the year 2020, she furthered her studies at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), after which she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.

Per the interests pursued so far, Miss Addo-Yobo prepared and delivered a spoken-word demonstration which was in a bid to promote autism awareness across the globe.

According to findings, Annette Addo-Yobo picked this sensitive approach because she has a brother living with autism — that was her major motivation.

Upon winning the enviable crown of Texas Queen, Annette Addo-Yobo took to Instagram to write a message of appreciation and recognition.

It reads : ” This crown is for every young child, teenager, or adult within the autism range who felt alienated, abandoned, stereotyped and shunned because of their different abilities.”

This message brings to light Miss Addo-Yobo’s immense desire to curb discrimination between autistic children and other children around.

It, also, an awakening call for individuals of every status to welcome and care for every child equally, even when they have to deal with autism.
