The Light at the End of the Tunnel
Stuart is a Singaporean adult with ADHD and despite being a dropout, made it to law school in the UK. He will be graduating next year. He says: “I was diagnosed with ADHD around 8. To make a long story short, I dropped out of school and started working in blue-collar jobs for several years. I do not have any O or A levels, but managed to get into law school in the UK. So never allow anyone to tell you that ADHD is a failure. I'm proof of it.”
