ADHD 17-yr-old Prosthesis Designer Everett Kroll Shares his Experience & Advice
This is a great kid, mature beyond his years. I discovered Everett when someone sent me an article about him competing in the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair, (Bio-Medical Engineering category), and winning out over 1,800 competing students from 80+ countries! He’s brilliant and certainly has a bright future; just listen to how he answered “What do you wanna do with your life”? What were you doing in High School? I’m thankful we got to spend some time with him this week. Enjoy!
