Autistic Starbucks Barista is Inspiring

Sam is a teenager with autism. When he was offered a position to work as a barista at Starbucks, Sam told his parents that his life had meaning.

Sam’s particular type of autism creates a movement disorder. Most people make fun of Sam, but his manager Chris believed in him. They turned his movements into dance, and now Sam is known as “the dancing barista.”
