It's okay to be different!
In the documentary, Lewis talks about how he's always been an outsider and never quite fit in with his peers.

Lewis is open about his struggles with anxiety and depression, as well as with his journey with Tourette’s.
The documentary highlights just how important it is to seek help and talk openly about your struggles!
It's okay to be vulnerable and ask for support when we need it.
Persistence pays off
Like all neurodivergent folks, Lewis faced a lot of rejection and setbacks along the way. But eventually, his hard work paid off!
As busy-brains, we usually face extra barriers along the way - and society has a longggg way to go in supporting and accommodating us.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t achieve our wildest dreams.

From the outside, it looks like Lewis has a perfect life - but he still faces challenges and struggles with his mental health.
External success doesn’t always equal internal happiness.
It's important to prioritise how you feel as well as what you’re achieving.
Celebrate your accomplishments
Give yourself a big old pat on the back, and celebrate all of your successes - both with yourself and with your loved ones.
It's important to recognise and celebrate our accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem!
