Join us for this powerful talk with author Peter Harrower who tells us about his dyslexia journey and his new book, "The World Through My Dyslexic Eyes."
A word from Peter Harrower:
"I have a Learning Disability and Dyslexia. Most of the time I felt like I wasn't normal. I don't think I’ll ever be normal.
Compared to everybody I felt like an outsider. Kids would always ask, "Why are you in those extra classes and getting extra help?" This led to a lot of unwanted attention. That led to more unwanted feelings, embarrassment, and a lack of confidence in myself, which still affects me to this day at 28.
Join us to hear how Peter has persevered and found purpose and meaning throughout his dyslexia journey.
