‘Dyslexia is more of a learning style’ – that’s how I see myself. I don’t see dyslexia as a ‘disability’, however it is something I have and people don’t see.

Results day is right round the corner and lots of people will be expecting a piece of paper that will change the course of their life for the next few years. Even if it wasn’t the life course you were expecting, it will still change the course of your life – and it will be fab no matter what! I remember my A level results day, I cried so much – of happiness! I was so so proud I’d actually got that far!
