Kate Kamoshita: The Legend of Education & Advocacy

This episode is dedicated to Marina, Kate’s mother who showed her that if you really want to do something then you can do it, including saving endangered cultural heritage. Kate and I show you what it looks like when two people who have ADHD record a podcast episode. We really want to bring to light stories of people who have been marginalised and struggle because of their neurodiversity. If you are neurotypical, we hope you feel more informed and neurodiverse people will feel a little less alone. 

If you enjoyed this episode and it inspired you in some way, we’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway. Head over to Apple Podcasts to leave a review and we’d love it if you would come and say hi over on @sarahfuruyacoaching on Instagram.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • How Kate lived with undiagnosed ADHD until the age of 34
  • Some of the ways that ADHD can present in women or those assigned female at birth
  • The emotional damage of undiagnosed ADHD and why some people get diagnosed and others don’t
  • How Kate advocates for others to receive a diagnosis or assistance with ADHD
