Ianni urges Central City Bison students to respect everyone and change the world
Anthony Ianni told students from Central City, Nebraska that they are the ones who can bring change to their school, community, state, nation and even the world.
Ianni told students that he has Pervasive Developmental Disorder, which places him on the autism spectrum and that he was bullied not only because of his autism, but also because he was so much bigger than everyone else.
He presented each of the students with bags, which included T-shirts and other gear. “Every time you’ve got this gear, whether it’s the bag, a shirt, the folder, whatever’s in there, I want you to think about the change you’re going to be in life.”
Ianni said that students are not just the change that may be needed in their school or community, “but the change that is needed in our society.”
