A passionate ADHD advocate, Selina Lee, was born in 1975, Sydney, Australia. She grew up in a single parent family with her mother, brother and sister, due to the unexpected death of her father in a motorcycle accident, aged 5. Selina spent her childhood in Brisbane. Her family were not well off, and at times struggled to makes ends meet. After school and various jobs, Selina became a Croupier leading to opportunity for travel. She worked on cruise ships in her early 20’s travelling the world. She then landed in the UK, changing profession, and spent a decade as a Police Constable in Metropolitan Police Force, London, where she met, Bob ‘The Bobby’. Wanting a family, Selina and Bob moved to Queensland, where she now lives on the beautiful Gold Coast, as a Private Investigator. Selina was diagnosed with ADHD at 40, after her first son was diagnosed ADHD, age 6. Selina’s partner and second son have also now been diagnosed with ADHD. Years of misdirection, myth and stigma, led to Selina researching ADHD for five years and it became evident that ADHD is a prevalent childhood disorder that still remains misunderstood and unsupported. The difference in early diagnosis and treatment versus not is stark and can be life and death. Selina is helping create a better world for her children by writing books and has set up a charity for children with ADHD.
