I am a Neurodiverse Black Woman and I am Filled with Hope.
“These signs of change give me so much hope that young, Black, neurodiverse girls today won’t have to go through what I did just to discover their amazing selves.”
Even with a diagnosis, I never felt like teachers, coaches, and other adults in my life fully understood me. (Except for my supportive parents — something so many go without.) Many of my teachers made no attempts to hide their biases, and often saw me as an impulsive, misbehaving student rather than one struggling with symptoms of a condition."
