Thank you Erika for sharing your project and for fundraising on behalf of ADAA. We so appreciate it! 

"I am a distinguished scholar here at the Grosse Ile middle school in Michigan. For my 7th grade year here at the middle school, I chose to research about anxiety because some of my friends have it and I wanted to try and help them out. I have only been researching about it for a few months and I already know so much about it! I have already helped my friends by making them stress balls and different gadgets to play with.They say that they are very helpful when it comes to a hard test or assignment.  Read more.

China's Story - Part Two...
"Becoming the Change"
When I last sat down to reflect on my journey with anxiety I was nervous, timid, and YES even a little ANXIOUS. I wanted to share my story with the "right" spin or the "right" perspective. I gave just enough details to get the point across and deflect the focus away from me and my "issues".  This is what came out.
That was 5 or 6 months ago when I put those words down on paper. The mistake I made when first sharing my story was not emphasizing how much I battle to excel every day. These are called "Stories of Triumph" and I did not express the battle I fight daily to excel in spite of my anxiety...
Each month ADAA will feature a thank you note, or a personal story of triumph. We invite you to share your own story with us or share how ADAA has helped you or a loved one.  Share your story
