University of Denver - 2014
I partnered with the International Dyslexia Association's Rocky Mountain branch to co-found a mentorship program called Youth Examples of Self-Advocacy (YES) for kids with dyslexia and also worked (and continue to work) with Literate Nation, an organization that aims to make literacy a reality for all kids. My passion behind it started from my own educational difficulties as an individual with dyslexia and ADHD. I was (and still am!) passionate about making school suck less for other kids than it sucked for me.
What are you up to now?
Getting my PhD in Clinical Psychology. My research is in reading and executive function in children.
