Autistic Teen Stuns Crowd with Inspiring Graduation Speech

The crowd was amazed when Sef Scott stepped up to the podium during his high school graduation event last week. Because the teenager has autism and social communication condition, he rarely speaks.

So when he then continued to provide an effective speech about “doing the unexpected,” the students and spectators were in awe.

Sef says that he was influenced to offer the speech by his sibling, who is a brain tumor survivor and public speaker for charities. For weeks, Sef worked with his family to perfect every sentence of the speech address so he could amaze his peers.

The speech went better than anyone could have predicted.

In the speech, Sef encourages his fellow graduates of Plano Secondary school to follow his example and do the unanticipated– whether it’s by doing little things, like giving a gift to a complete stranger, or by doing bigger things, like altering the whole course of your life.

By the end of the speech, the Frisco, Texas football arena spectators– numerous of whom remained in tears– jumped to their feet so they could give a standing ovation.
