Join Lindsay Guentzel as she welcomes Misha Nicholas to the podcast. In this episode she shares her ADHD story and finding her inner child. To Misha, whatever happens to you in your childhood manifests in your adulthood and if you don’t get that treated you will walk around broken. I think you will really enjoy listening to Misha’s infectious energy and passion as she shares her diagnosis, how she is more than just this diagnosis, and how we need more people who think differently in order to make this world a better place.
Misha Nicholas is a neurodivergence advocate who is passionate about climate change and gender equality. Interested in the environment, activism, and policy, she has studied in Rome and Australia, worked for NGOs, IGOs, and CGIAR. Most recently, Misha won a competition called “Journey to Hurricane Island” carried out by an NGO called United People Global (UPG). UPG is an organization that inspires others to make the world a better place! She will also be a panelist in an upcoming podcast with the Children’s Health Council called “The Problem with Overcoming: Learning to Value Your Differences,” in which she will discuss some of the ways she overcame her learning differences in a neurotypical world. She also will be a panelist in the 2023 National Community Schools and Family Engagement Conference in Philadelphia in June.
