Mission

Neurodiversity is the idea that neurological differences like autism and ADHD are the result of normal, natural variations in the human brain. People experience and interact with the world in many different ways due to these differences and there is no one “right” way of thinking, learning, and behaving. Our mission is to celebrate neurodiversity and help neurodivergent people cultivate their unique talents, pursue their passions, and be their biggest, baddest selves.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Neurodivergence is estimated to affect a significant minority of the population at 15-20%. Additionally, the unemployment rate among neurodivergent adults is 30-40%, which is 3x the rate for people with disabilities and 8x the rate for people without disability. Because neurodivergent individuals are often marginalized due to their conditions, we believe building personal confidence around their super powers can help a neurodivergent individual be more successful in a work environment. Additionally, generating awareness and acceptance among co-workers will also create a more inclusive environment for everyone to thrive. We believe we can help close the employment gap by advocating for neurodiversity and helping people recognize that neurodivergent simply means "different" and is not a deficit.

Scholarships

Neurodivergent people can sometimes be underestimated, but they have incredible talents and are far more capable than they are given credit for. All human beings can do amazing things, and sometimes they just need a little power-up to turn a marginalized individual into their biggest, baddest self.

Dreamzilla exists to help neurodivergent individuals pursue their passions and realize their dreams. Our scholarships can provide neurodivergent people with a launching pad for them to accomplish their dreams.

Our founder Kyle Loh’s unique journey from a bullied child with autism to an accomplished race car driver is an inspirational story about perseverance, self-realization, acceptance, and overcoming obstacles to find success.

Some of the challenges Kyle faced could have been circumvented if people he met had shown a greater understanding of neurodivergent individuals. Kyle believes that implementing sustainable change begins with inspiring the next generation. The more people that are aware of facts and have understanding, the less isolated neurodivergent people will feel among their peers.

Building awareness through education is a key pillar in achieving Dreamzilla’s mission. We have developed a program to present Kyle’s story at events like school assemblies, or other gatherings where people can listen and resonate with his inspiring journey. Kyle’s memorable, engaging presentation will leave a positive impact on all who hear his story.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 05 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Co-founder, CEO

Kyle Loh

Kyle Loh is a remarkable 25-year-old Taiwanese/American Race Car Driver. His love for speed is only surpassed by his dedication to making a difference. Diagnosed with autism and ADHD at an early age, Kyle channels his passion for racing into creating opportunities for other neurodivergent individuals. In 2022, Kyle founded Dreamzilla, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the neurodivergent community. Dreamzillas mission is to help other neurodivergent individuals find success by cultivating their unique talents and pursuing their passions. For Kyle, racing isnt just about crossing the finish line, its about breaking barriers for a more inclusive world. His goal is to showcase that drive and compassion can fuel success both on and off the circuit for all neurodivergent individuals.
