  1. ADHD is definitely a blessing and a curse – I agree it’s fun! But at the same time, you do have to be proactive to find ways to harness the ADHD energy! Sounds like Alex was supported well growing up, which is just key to long-term success! And being “body-aware” is awesome! It’s wonderful that Alex makes Science cool! Thank you!
