Born on April 2. Is it a simple coincidence? Adina let David ”steal her soul”, with a camera, one of the things she was so afraid of when she was a child.
Adina was raised in a particular sensorial world, full of audio tales. She was afraid of some sounds and also of many technical things, including her sister’s camera.
Her interest in radio plays brought about a passion for the theatre, matching words and profound behavioural analysis.
Adina thought that she is important because her passions filled up all of her time. Yet as she confessed, all of these never “brought her love”.
When Adina was 17, she found out about Asperger’s, but she chose to push it away, leaving it in her soul, forgetting about it. Later she became more and more curious about it.
She connected on different media channels with other Aspie persons. That’s when she realised that some of her Aspie augmented features may actually be in her advantage.
She understood that the particular feelings that make her different from the neurotypical persons turn her into a special being. Fear of everything surrounding her transformed into an avid curiosity about people.
Eventually she studied psychology.
Her academic curriculum allowed her to understand what’s going on with her and to organise her life. This way she could move on, keeping her own life direction.
We met her when she was volunteering for TedX Eroilor, in Cluj. She immediately got connected with us and allowed David to take her photograph when she came to Bucharest to see a drama production.
Adina loves theatre and writes chronicles on http://wonderland65.home.blog> She also writes her #jurnaldeasperger, a collection of incredible touching stories about her Aspie life.
She managed to overcome many of her fears, such as a conversation over the phone or public speaking. She is a member of Toastmasters community and she vlogs on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHbpXFxGjB3LQtu-FdZ_oVLbSWnRwXgKY
She likes to create written or video content and she would love to work with creative and PR agencies.
