BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn college student is striving to set an example for others by not letting his condition get in the way of his dreams.

Ron Wilson has Asperger Syndrome, a type of autism characterized by impaired social interactions and sensory overload. But that hasn't stopped Wilson, who in addition to being a college student, loves to dance and act.

"I love performing. I like making people happy," Wilson says.

Wilson now dreams of one day becoming a Broadway actor.
