Middle schooler Joe Andino

Using ADHD to Fuel His Dreams

When he was younger, Joelliuz “Joe” Andino had a hard time focusing and controlling his impulses.

Joe has tons of brilliant ideas. He also has ADHD, which made learning and socializing difficult for him. With support from The Shadow Project, Joe started high school with confidence and optimism for his future. He wants to inspire other kids like him to believe that they can reach their goals. Joe’s dream is to use his skills to work for a company like Google.

“If you hyper focus on your passions, you can turn that ADHD into a positive thing,” says Joe.
