Ever felt like school wasn’t built for your brain?To be 1 in 3 kids with ADHD, means there’s a lot of us that need a better education. John German talks about ADHD and what it is like to have it in a demanding society with such a death grip on performance in the class room.
John is a senior at Valencia High school. He has been in two plays, his first being The Diary of Anne Frank where he played the sullen dentist, Mr. Dussel and his second being Twelfth Night as a holy Priest and a shabby Captain. He has directed two DTASC (a drama competition) scenes both of them making it to finals and is currently working on his third scene. He worked backstage as a spotlight on last year’s spring musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. He is a thespian and has a true passion for the theatrical arts, both on stage and behind the scenes. He also enjoys drawing and painting as a small hobby for when he is stressed. This isn’t his first nor last time on stage but he is hoping to give you a ted talk to change the way you view something very near and dear to him. He is grateful of all the love and support his family, friends, and girlfriend have given him. He really hopes you are excited and enjoy this TEDx event.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at x
