Hi! My name is Taylor, I am 18 years old and I’m from Port Moody, BC. I just finished my first year at SFU and work at Rocky Point Ice Cream. When I was in elementary school, I was diagnosed with dyslexia. In grade 5 I had the reading level of a kindergartener. This was an extreme struggle and resulted in me developing an anxiety disorder at a young age. I hated school and I dreaded going every day. I always had people judging me and looking at me like I was less than they are just because I couldn’t read. I had multiple teachers tell me I would never graduate high school, let alone me ever attending post secondary school. My mom through it all was alway by my side and told me to never think that I’m not enough. She always pushes me and has supported me in so many ways. My sisters have always been by my side every step of the way and has always kept a smile on my face. With out my sisters and my mom I would have never had the strength to graduate high school with good grade and being accepted into multiple post secondary schools. They inspire me everyday and I don’t know what I would do with out them.
