It's #DyslexiaAwarenessWeek. Did you know one in ten of us are estimated to be dyslexic? People with dyslexia are often told about the weaknesses and downfalls of being dyslexic, but there are a lot of strengths in it too. From being able to see the bigger picture and communicating with others, this awareness week is all about empowering those with dyslexia.

I'm Georgia, the Young Adult Carer Communications Officer and I'm dyslexic too. I was diagnosed with dyslexia in my second year of university and my writing and work improved so much just from knowing my weaknesses and turning them into challenges that I could overcome.
