Writing Diversely Interview

In this month’s Writing Diversely interview, I’m chatting with the founder of Awekids, Mariela Diaz, about Autism & ADHD. Mariela is an Autistic/ADHD designer, illustrator and founder of Awekids, an inclusive e-commerce business that aspires to unite all children, of all abilities and differences, to go on magical adventures and educational journeys, to learn through play about inclusivity, representation and acceptance.

She is a Mama of four neurodiverse lil’ beans ranging from teens to a preschooler. In her spare time she enjoys being involved in her community and helping to advocate for children’s rights, inclusion and diversity. Mariela creates free educational resources for children, educators and parents that are available on her website.
