To all of the children who, like me, struggled to tie their shoes, read an analog clock, hold a pencil properly, or write their own name, all while the other kids in class were reading fluently – DON’T GIVE UP! Reach for the stars! Today is my first day as a paid Software Development Intern for NASA. To spend the summer between high school and college working on a project I enjoy for an organization I have always admired is a dream come true! Dyslexia is not a disability; it gives us the courage, motivation, and problem-solving skills to welcome challenges, not run from them. Believe in yourself and set your goals high! You can reach them!
