Growing Up An ADHD Asian Minority in Canada with MJ Siemens, host of the ADHD Diversified podcast

February 13, 2021

Today, we’re talking to MJ Siemens, host of the upcoming podcast, ADHD Diversified. 

In today’s episode, MJ shares her experiences growing up as a gifted Asian Canadian kid with undiagnosed ADHD.  She tells us about being caught in the push/pull clash of Asian culture and White culture and how having ADHD made it harder for her to meet the expectations of both, how her parents separation led to her dropping out of school in her senior year, and why academia isn’t the only road to success.
