21-Year-Old Black Autistic Woman Makes History, Opens New Beauty Bar in Georgia




Aaliyah Alicia Thompson, a 21-year-old African American woman from Stockbridge, Ga., has made history as the first woman with autism in the country to open her very own beauty bar.

She recently opened Aaliyah’s Beauty Bar in Clayton County (just 15 miles from Atlanta) to provide hair and beauty care services.

Aaliyah hopes to serve as an inspiration to all people, particularly to families that deal with autism, that they can also achieve anything that they dream of.
