Raelene Sebastian: Mosh pits, military spouses & dismantling stigma within families

54m | Feb 13, 2023

Episode 124 with Raelene Sebastian.

“I read a list of symptoms and tears just streamed out of my eyes. There was such relief but also sadness — like, how did I never know this?”

Rae is a 25-year-old Australian-born Filipino woman and a military spouse who works as a Recruitment Consultant in an agency that hires childcare educators in Sydney.

A former childcare educator herself, Rae has supported children and families from all diverse backgrounds and helped families with their children's diagnoses long before making the connection in her own life. 

Rae advocates for consent, mental health, military spouses, and lately ADHD in women since being diagnosed in November of 2022. 

She also loves strawberries, frequenting thrift stores, walking her sausage dog to the beach and going on alphabet dates with her husband.

We talk all about hyper-fixations, dopamine dressing, life as a military spouse, and how her diagnosis has allowed her to help her family members better understand neurodivergence.
