Proof Positive’s mission is to spread the science and skills of happiness and bring momentum to the wellbeing movement for the autism community. That’s why we’re so excited to share our feature in AwareNow with you! 

AwareNow™ is a multimedia company and storytelling platform dedicated to creating and sustaining ​positive social change. The April 2024 VIVID Edition of AwareNow’s digital magazine features an exclusive interview with autistic and disability inclusion changemaker, speaker, and founder of Infinite Flow dance, Marisa Hamamoto, on page 82. 

In this interview, Marisa talks about: 

  • How her experiences overcoming rejection in the dance industry and navigating her identity as Japanese American have shaped her advocacy for inclusion
  • Her relationship with dance before and after experiencing a stroke at the age of 24
  • Finding wheelchair dancing and the story of her first dance
  • What it was like being diagnosed with autism at the age of 40 and how she leverages her platform to raise awareness around mental health and neurodiversity
  • How she came across Proof Positive and the importance of centering happiness and wellbeing for the autism community
  • And more!


We hope Marisa’s story inspires you to be well.
