“It’s OK to be eccentric, but, not sloppy” — Temple Grandin
Temple emphasized that its OK to be different, but no excuses for being dirty, sloppy or dressed poorly during a keynote on autism on January 14, 2014 in Mandan, ND.
I didn’t know that Temple came to Mandan. I saw the movie about her and really enjoyed it.
Shelly was involved with bringing her to Mandan. I got to spend the evening prior to her presentations at supper with her. She was absolutely fantastic to listen to on a more personal level.
Do we judge what people have to say by what they wear?
Temple’s mission is to help folks with autism be successful in life. She said that being different is fine but is there any excuse for being physically dirty and stinky?
Gosh, I’m kind of jealous. She seems like such an interesting person.
She was interesting and pure luck on my part that I had the opportunity to dine with her.
