Mark Fernando

Autism Resource Centre (Singapore)

The youngest in a close-knit family of five, Mark’s love for war history, documentaries and the aerospace was nurtured from young. Now 12 years of age and influenced by his Singapore Airlines pilot dad whom he deeply admires, the blossoming teen holds American war hero, Mr Ernest Edwin Evans with such high esteem and inspiration that he wants to be just like him.

Friendly, pleasant and creative, Mark enjoys building LEGO and is talented in recreating models of the structures of warships, battleships and space crafts that he has seen. In working towards his dream, Mark is making every effort to do well for his studies, developing good disciplines and habits, and leadership skills.

Mark is ever eager to learn and grow. He is well-liked by his classmates and teachers at Pathlight School.

Mark is special. He is autistic.
He has a dream. He would love to be a commander in the Airforce.
