René Brooks has been a typical person living with ADHD since as far back as she can remember. She loses keys, books, essays, homework, and her glasses when they are on her face.
She created Black Girl Lost Keys to share her experiences of learning how to navigate the world as an adult with ADHD while being part of a demographic that is still largely skeptical of neurological disorders and mental illness. You can find her on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.
She was first diagnosed at the tender age of 11, but never received treatment until age 25.
