René Brooks

Who am I? Well, for starters, my name is René. Ever since I can remember, I have been a typical ADHDer. I lose my keys, my books, my essays, my homework, and my glasses when they are on my face. I was diagnosed at the tender age of 11, but never received treatment until age 25. The experience of learning that what I have is real and that it can be worked with began there. Black Girl Lost Keys was created to share the experience of receiving a diagnosis of ADHD late in life, all while being part of a demographic that is still largely skeptical of mental illnesses.
