After deciding he’d like to pursue a career in animation, 20-year-old Ryan Lowry penned a heartfelt message to his “future employer” that described his talents and passions, while also noting that he has autism.
Ryan, who recently celebrated his birthday, posted the handwritten letter to LinkedIn. In it, he described his gift of mathematics, his sense of humor, and his go-getter attitude that made him ready to learn anything he needs to succeed.
“I realize that someone like you will have to take a chance on me, I don’t learn like typical people do,” he wrote, in part. “I would need a mentor to teach me, but I learn quickly, once you explain it, I get it. I promise that if you hire me and teach me, you’ll be glad that you did.”
“I will show up every day, do what you tell me to do, and work really hard,” he added.
