About Shannen

Why The Strange is Beautiful?

I started this project because my whole life I’ve grown up with kids who have ADHD, schizophrenia, panic disorder, anxiety, PTSD, depression….including my own set of obstacles. And I felt like no one cared about what we were going through, no one wanted to listen to us, and no one wanted to have anything to do with us period…and none of us knew how to get better. I had panic disorder since high school and cycles of depression and anxiety since junior high school. I lost friends, boyfriends, etc. because they didn’t know how to deal with someone with mind obstacles, they didn’t want to learn how, and I didn’t know how to teach them at the time anyway.
