I decided to create Dyslexia Demystified as a dyslexic student myself to help spread awareness on dyslexia. I first started by creating a website on which I share information as well as tips on dyslexia. Later on, I launched the “Customised Reading Projekt,” also known as #studentsreadingforstudents project, in which I asked students to read out short stories in their native languages for struggling readers to practice reading.
By now, we have managed to collect short story videos in 20 different languages. Most videos being from people in my class (7i).
The videos are uploaded on the website and on an Instagram page that I created under @dyslexia_demystified_today.
In addition, Alma Rosenmann, Nathaniel Gaugy, and I have created a Podcast on Spotify. We talk about relevant issues concerning dyslexia with the mission to get more people informed on dyslexia.
