Living with Tourettes: Finding the flip side

Michael Chichioco is a junior at Saint Ignatius College Preparatory in San Francisco, California. Living with Tourette’s Syndrome, Michael has had to persevere through many obstacles presented by his condition, and has developed a deep passion for sharing his story and for inspiring others who might struggle in similar ways. A statement from Michael: “Although I've been faced with many obstacles so far, I've always found a way to venture past these obstacles. Every time I share my story to anyone, my confidence level rises and I slowly start to accept who I am no matter what differences I have!”

This talk was given at a TEDx event.

"People need to know that TS is involuntary. We don't need pity, but some will always need help, support and understanding"
