There is a lot more representation of HFA in the media. I want to see someone like me in the media.

I would too.

When non HFA autistics do get the publicity it is mostly about what a burden they are to their parents.

Agreed. LFAs are more than just a burden to our parents. People need to know our strengths despite our disabilities.

This Korean movie about a marathon runner with autism looks interesting:
