Teenager makes video to raise awareness of Tourette’s Syndrome

Mars Rowan is a teenager in Australia who is raising awareness about what it means to be young and to live with Tourette’s Syndrome. The neurological condition causes involuntary sounds and movements, known as tics, that can be debilitating when they hit. She spoke to us about her decision to make a video of herself talking about Tourette's Syndrome on the social media video app, TikTok.
