Elise Muller was diagnosed with autism at the age of 12 and was told from a very young age about all the things she couldn’t do.
But she refused to take no for an answer and ended up playing Australian Rules football at an elite level for Essendon.
Elise is passionate about the role of sport in mental health and founded her own organisation to support people with autism wanting to get involved in recreational activities.
