VIDEO: Girl’s written poem speaks volumes about A.D.D.

(WFLA) — A high school student in Virginia was asked to write a spoken poem for her creative writing class, and her story is touching viewers across the country.

Jenah Marie Creecy told WFLA News Channel 8’s Lila Gross she wanted to spread a message about how Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.) affects her daily life.

“My friends sometimes don’t understand me, or why I don’t respond,” Creecy said.

Creecy said she used to draw little pictures on her homework and it would take her multiple hours to get through seemingly easy tasks for others. But, now Creecy said she is learning more about the disorder herself and building awareness.

The almost-graduate also said she is doing much better in school.

“I can understand and follow along so much better now,” Creecy said.

Keep up the good work Jenah!
