24岁的陈毅雄患有自闭症,过去他把自己比喻成《星舰迷航记》里的人物“Data”,视自己是个装置在人体里的电脑,不懂得人类拥有的七情六欲。现在,他却能把自己的生活经历写成书,还积极发起宣传活动,并到国外演讲、当义工。

24 year old Eric has autism. Previously, he compares himself to the Star Trek character "Data": He views himself as a computer stuck in a human body, alien to the varied emotions of human beings. Now, not only is he able to write his life experiences into a book, he also actively starts his advocacy work. Since then, he has went overseas to give talks and do volunteer work.

童年外号“怪人” / Childhood Nickname “Oddball”

其实“怪人”这个外号是一些家庭成员偶然叫我的。同学有给我一些更不雅的外号。

It was certain members of my family who occasionally labeled me with this. My classmates had other more unpleasant nicknames for me.
