Hi! My name is Marimac McRae. I am from Nashville, Tennessee, and I am a student at Dartmouth College. I am majoring in English with a concentration in Creative Writing, and I will minor in Philosophy. Inattentive type ADHD has been a presence in my life since I was young, but I was diagnosed at the end of my sophomore year of high school. I want to help parents understand why their children emotionally react to ADHD the way that they do through sharing my own personal experiences. I also hope to be able to speak to children or young adults who need a voice that assures them that they are not alone. Thank you to ADDitude for having me!
