In her videos, she talks about how girls are typically diagnosed with autism much later than boys because they’re better at adopting the traits of those who aren’t autistic.
"I was 15 when I got diagnosed, and that's considered early for a girl. I have a guy friend who's autistic and he was two when he got diagnosed,” she says in one video.
"It's also very common for girls with autism to have other mental disabilities or mental disorders as well," she said in the video. "I have seven."
As for her tell-tale traits? She’s overly social, performs well in social situations and uses too much eye contact – shutting down the stereotype that autistic people are antisocial.
"I've been diagnosed for four years and I'm still trying to figure out who I am and what I actually like to do," she says. “You just get so used to creating this mask that when it's like, 'hey you can take it off', you're like 'what the frig is underneath it?'"
She also stresses the importance of avoiding labels such as “high” or “low-functioning” to describe people with autism.
"I know you might think that saying 'oh you're high functioning' is a compliment -- it's not a compliment," she says. "It's actually a reminder that I am just masking and it is so hard."
But after years of hiding in the “autistic closet,” Paige is ready to fully embrace her diagnosis.
"Not, you know, pretending I'm someone I'm not and just being more myself," she says.
