Robin Borakove made history when she was the first Special Needs Adult to be approved by Fleishman/Hillard and the Olympic Committee as a journalist to cover the Special Olympic World Games LA2015. This was a monumental moment for Robin because only a few years prior, she was ready to give up her life. But at age 42, when all seemed hopeless, she was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.
Robin pays it forward by inspiring others to become their own heroes and save their life! She also teaches through the art of storytelling as her character, Fairy Queen Flutterby™. As the Fairy, Robin receives hugs from Special Needs children who NEVER even hug their parents, and in turn teaches those parents how to get their own precious hugs. She has created a charity, developed an Adult Special Needs dating service, resource network, and is an interpreter for her peers.
A native Californian, Robin is presently launching her third book and her 501c3 non profit, Autism Spectrum Disorder Supports (ASDS).
Through her documentary, My Metamorphosis: A Journey To Nuerofeedback and pEMF, Robin chronicles this extraordinary experience. Ms. Borakove is the author of three children’s books, Little Edwin’s Triumph (2009), Fairy Fizzle’s Plight (2010), and the novel Fairy Queen Flutterby (2014). She has written and produced a nine-minute presentation video for her educational children’s
televison series, "ENFAIRYA." Robin promoted her animated series, "Cogg in the Machine," at the 2014 WonderCon and Comic-Con in California.
