Tucker Bearden, a self-proclaimed “farm boy from the sticks of Ark,” was born with Asperger’s, a neurological abnormality that hinders the natural ability to understand social queues as well as emotional responses.
Tucker shares his experiences living on the spectrum and the lessons he has learned along the way. He helps others to live a fuller and more meaningful life.
He fought bullying, addiction, homelessness, and even several suicide attempts. Through it all he learned that a diagnosis does not define who you are or what you are capable of achieving. He stands as living proof of this fact.
Tucker stands out because there is a distinct difference between listening to a motivational speaker and being INSPIRED by someone to whom you feel a connection. Tucker says, “Motivation lasts a day, Inspiration lasts a lifetime.”
