Through all of his many medical experiences, Isaac says he has discovered a fault of the medical community that labels people with disabilities. As a child, doctors labeled Isaac as a high-functioning person with autism. When he was younger, Tracey moved Isaac to several different schools, as they felt the educational system did not have the means to support Isaac. Isaac felt the label "high-functioning" kept him from receiving certain resources.
Sometimes a place can get really loud, and feel chaotic and overwhelming because of the sounds. Isaac uses headphones to help muffle and suppress the sounds so that he can focus on concentrating. A teacher in one of his classes felt the headphones were "disrespectful", and wouldn't let Isaac wear them. Tracey and Isaac felt that Isaac's needs were not being met, as every child needs their own unique accommodations to succeed in the classroom.
Ever since his own experience with labels, Isaac says he dedicates school projects, papers, and even his personal free-time to research on how functioning labels on the disabled community are ineffective.
These two tiny dog statues represent some of the greatest loves and admirations in his and his family's life, says Isaac and Tracey. Harley and Cooper are the two family pets, which are viewed more as family members shares Isaac. Harley is a three year old yorkie, and Cooper is also three, but a beagle and boxer mix. Both dogs have spent the majority of their lives in Isaac's family home, and Isaac said that they were both adopted when they were just over a month old. Between his two dog family members at home, and his time volunteered at SICSA Pet Adoption Center, Isaac made it very clear that he is invested in working with and appreciating animals.
Isaac shared that has many talents apart from being an empathetic animal lover. He participates in ballet, jazz, drawing and artistry, bass playing, and broadway acting. All of these hobbies are big passions of Isaac's, as he says that he has dedicated a lot of time into pursuing his dreams and doing what he enjoys doing most.
