Drew was born to be a star! Recently, Drew auditioned and was accepted into the honors drama program at his local middle school. In order to earn the exclusive spot, Drew had to memorize a monologue and perform in front of a panel of judges. Drew approached the challenge bravely and amazed the audience.

He hopes to bring his dramatic abilities to more than just the stage one day. Drew dreams of being a YouTube star and looks up to Dan TDM, one of his favorite YouTubers to watch. Drew hopes to film about video games, technology, and robotics and turn his passions into a tool for others to learn from.

Drew’s mom is so proud of how far he has come since he was a young and shy toddler. With autism, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and a speech & motor-skill delay, Drew took a bit longer to learn how to walk and talk. Now, he more than surpasses all expectations of him and has become a talented performer. He doesn’t want to just be a shining star on stage but out in the world as well!
