Campaign: To show how hyperkinetic disorder can be isolating

I have always found it hard to express my emotions and understand how other people are feeling, which caused many problems for me when I was younger.


I was badly bullied and got into fights because people got the wrong idea about me.  I also got into a lot of trouble with the police.


I was diagnosed with hyperkinetic disorder when I was 11.  It caused me a lot of difficulty when interacting with others but over the years I have learnt how to manage the condition without relying on medication.


Beatboxing helps me to express my emotions.  I love mimicking sounds I hear and experimenting with my voice.


I created 3D printed models of soundwaves created by different emotions such as crying, a laugh and a scream to exhibit in an art gallery. 


I am asking people to identify which is which, to illustrate how hard it is for me to decipher different emotions.



The following Fixers have helped me with this project:
