Caitlyn Meyers is in her freshman year at Angelina College. She is a person with ADHD and visual-spatial organization deficit disorder. She understands that her “disability” is a gift, and sees the world in a completely different way than most people. As a child, learning was extremely difficult, as well as making friends. Having ADHD as a girl is completely different than it is for boys—it’s like watching a TV with constantly changing channels. Caitlyn was also extremely hyper, which didn’t mix well with a visual-spatial disorder. Her victory was learning how to work with her disabilities. She climbed that mountain, left dust behind, and hasn’t looked back. She has proved wrong everyone who said she’d never drive, get a higher education, function like a seemingly normal person, and live without assistance. She has gotten all A’s on multiple occasions. A vast number of people love her for who she was meant to be. Caitlyn wouldn’t change herself for the world. She sees things differently than “normal people” and it is absolutely beautiful
