Charles Quigless III, known as C-Quig, is a 20 year old rapper from St. Louis, MO. When he was two a half years old, he was diagnosed with autism. Doctors told his parents that C-Quig would not be able to have a conversation with them. He attended Clayton High School and his love of music grew when he wrote, performed, and recorded a rap insert for a song with his church youth choir in high school. Now, at age 20, Charlie is a full-time college student at Millikin University studying commercial music while also being an up-and-coming rapper, singer, and performer. C-Quig is a dedicated autism self-advocate and in partnership with the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation or Autism, he uses his platform to spread a positive message of hope and encouragement for others impacted by autism and those with disabilities.
