Australians with disabilities face many challenges, particularly when going to school and struggle with their daily activities.

This was the case of Asteria Grace, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 12, but it didn’t stop her from fulfilling her dreams as an actor and model.

She recently published a children’s book called ‘A wish upon a star’, raising awareness about autism.
