“Although it has been tough having dyslexia, it has taught me to be creative and see things in a different way to other people. If I could choose to get rid of it or keep it, I would keep it. I would not be me if I didn’t have it.” – Ivan Babic

“And now I’m a boarder in High School.  My mom can’t help me anymore and it’s entirely up to me to step up to the plate.  It’s a decision I made myself, and, although it’s tough sometimes, I have no doubt it was the correct one.” – Liam Jooste
