ADHD Never Giving Up on your Passion w/h Civil Engineer Liz Wells

by Faster Than Normal

Eight years of college, ‘being stubborn’ and above all- never giving up, made a success story of our guest today Liz Wells. A friend recommended I interview her for many reasons, but what really got me- is that she’s a huge animal lover too!! We don’t talk that much about animals today, (big ones, or small ones), but we definitely talk about big passion, drive and perseverance! Happy New Year! I hope you enjoy this one!

In this episode Peter and Liz discuss:

1:28-  Intro and welcome Liz

2:25-  Share with us your background- growing up, school, when you got diagnosed, etc.

3:50-  On college years and repeating classes

5:00-  So when you finally got diagnosed- how did you feel?

6:03-  On depression, meds and ADD

7:20-  When you were taking home mostly all “D”s and “F”s on your report card; what did you do?

8:50-  On keeping your true passion & drive, and not letting others sway you

10:11-  Peter on keeping true to his passion

11:00-  Liz on how she maintained on track towards her passion

12:09-  How are you using your ADD/ADHD as a superpower?

    Good stuff. I’m into engineering but have failed in college math courses myself and was kicked out of university myself. I wanted to know why she was passionate about civil engineering.
