I was adopted at age 2. I was brought into a family who absolutely loved me. They wanted to help me grow and become the inspirational young man I now am today. At the age of 4 I was diagnosed with ADHD. The struggles were normal. Throughout school I was treated as an outcast. It didn't stop me from completing school. By senior year, I was the first person in my biological family that had graduated High school. Finding that out was such a huge milestone for myself.
My words to youth and young adults is to never give up. Never let anyone tell you that you're not capable of doing something. The only person who knows what your capable of is yourself. So stay strong. Live optimistically, and cherish everything life throws at you. Your life is YOUR book. Each chapter will DEFINE who you are as a person. Remember, be yourself no matter what people say. You're who you are, and no one is like you. :)
