Grant is an Oklahoma native. He moved to Charlotte in 2010 with his mom and dad. As the youngest cast member at only 17 years of age, Grant hopes to empower other youth with mental health diagnoses to be brave about asking and receiving help. Grant was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome (Autism Spectrum) in 2011 after many years of trying to find the right diagnosis and medication. Grant has learned to channel the strengths of having Asperger’s to help him overcome the challenges that come with it. Grant’s love of history and writing have allowed him to win several international writing awards and he hopes to use his love for these two subjects to build a path to a career as an author. Grant also learned to use his interests to overcome the Asperger’s-related discomfort with social interactions. He is working towards an International Baccalaureate diploma, enjoys Boy Scouts, and has been a recreational fencer for the past 6 years.
