PLANO, Texas (KXAN/CNN) — A North Texas student with autism who is usually nonverbal delivers a speech at his high school graduation.
During his speech, Sef Scott says acknowledged him taking the podium and addressing his peers was “unexpected.”
Scott goes on to say he is a student with “learning differences” and he was the “unexpected choice of speaker.”
His emotional and motivational speech ended with: “Remember, if you are following in someone else’s footsteps, you will only get where they want to go. Be the unexpected like me.”
Scott said his mother and brother — a brain tumor survivor — helped him write his graduation speech sentence by sentence.
