Discovering I have ADHD changed everything. I always dreamed of being an inspirational writer but I was riddled with fears and anxieties around sharing my personal experiences with strangers, despite knowing how much it would help and encourage people. I was scared I would be judged and looked down on because the truth is, I judged and looked down on myself.

Learning I had ADHD was the push I needed. Instead of carrying more shame, I felt so liberated and instantly grew a passion to share what I was learning in the hopes of freeing others like me. I was so overwhelmed by the fact that I was able to understand myself through understanding ADHD that I boldly released my first blog post a few months later. This was the beginning of amazing things.

After starting my blog, I had a lot of people reach out to speak about their similar experiences so I often dreamt of being a life coach so that I could do what I love as an actual job and now, I am not yet at ‘leave my 9-5’ stage but by God’s grace, I will be soon and I can put all of my energy into killing mental health stigmas and helping others love their beautifully unique brains!
