Introducing Camryn and Umar, two remarkable individuals within our ABLE United community, who exemplify the boundless potential that exists despite any obstacles along the way.

Camryn, an ABLE account holder since 2020, was diagnosed with an intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder, but that has never stopped her. She’s been able to use her natural talents, empathy and her love for children, and with the support she receives from her family, she can build a life that will set her up for a successful future – including financial independence with her ABLE United account.

Umar, an ABLE account holder since 2022, has triumphed over numerous challenges while embracing a life filled with joy and adventure. Umar has autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and has defied limitations and found his passion in activities like basketball, camping, dancing and swimming. With unwavering support from his loving family, Umar has proven that determination and a supportive environment can enable individuals with ASD to embrace their interests, discover their talents and live life to the fullest.
