Have you ever felt like you're only hearing half of the story, like you're disconnected from the world around you? Sheena certainly knows that feeling all too well.
Throughout her educational journey, Sheena grappled with this disconnection, as if she were only experiencing half the soundtrack of life. Little did she know, her struggles were rooted in undiagnosed ADHD – a common reality for many.
