Lowry is a 2019 graduate of Heritage High School in Virginia. He is currently enrolled in the Community And Schools Together (CAST) program, a Loudoun County Public School post-graduate employment training program.
Seeking a job in animation or information technology, Lowry wrote a cover letter that's been viewed by millions of people on LinkedIn.
In the letter, he talks about having autism, but says he's determined to work hard for anyone who hires him.
"I realize that someone like you will have to take a chance on me," he says.
Since Lowry posted the letter last month, he has been inundated with calls from potential employers.
He has several interviews scheduled with Fortune 500 companies.
Lowry's parents, Rob and Tracy, couldn't be more proud of their son.
"I lay in bed at night and I cry reading the messages," Tracy told TODAY. "This raw, vulnerable letter has opened up so many opportunities."
