Aaron Slater loves listening to stories and dreams of one day writing stories himself. But when it comes to reading, the letters just look like squiggles to him. Aaron has dyslexia, just like fifteen to twenty percent of all people. He has difficulty identifying how speech sounds relate to letters and words, but it does not define who he is.
Instead, Aaron’s art leads the way and it helps him discover what he wants to say. His story about the power of art and finding your voice even when you’re out of step with your peers is a reminder that we each have our own superpowers and struggles. And that’s what makes us so unique and important to the world.
