Ben Nelson


Hey there, everyone! My name is Ben Nelson and I’m a young man who attended Foothill High School. I’m a dedicated and published children’s book author. My first published book is called Little Red Flying Hood, which is a spinoff of the original story: Little Red Riding Hood. I created the entire book in Adobe Illustrator, and I’m very passionate about creating children’s books in Adobe applications. My book was brought to life by the generous class of the 2016 of Southwest Career and Technical Academy.

On this site, you will not only find information about myself, but you will also find information about my past and current works, about autism, and other videos created by the students at SWCTA.
