Talking Youth


Aug 24, 2020

Today you are in for a treat guys! 
 
Georgia Ryan is a 14yr old bright spark, from Port Macquarie, Australia.
 
As a young child, her parents instilled in her the importance of Self-Advocacy, and this young lady is doing just that!
Georgia has dyslexia and dysgraphia, she has trouble reading and writing and processing written material and language and was not diagnosed until high school, which presented many challenges for her as a primary school student.
 
Being the optimist she is, Georgia has used this diagnosis to feel empowered and find her voice, normalising it amongst her peers, creating petitions to introduce a compulsory module in every teaching degree in Australia to support students further and is currently the Youth Ambassador for Dyslexia Mid North Coast.
 
She is a superstar. 
So eloquent, so passionate and so determined to create change and make a difference.
