Project Description

“There’s a brilliance to dyslexia that people don’t talk about. I accepted (my dyslexia) as a gift.” Emily West
Emily has always been an artist. She learned early on that school was not going to be where she shone brightest. Her parents nurtured her creativity and in third grade, hearing Patsy Cline inspired Emily to be a singer. While Emily struggled in school, she refused to be defined by her dyslexia. In 2014, she was runner up on the hit TV show “America’s Got Talent.” Watch Emily talk about overcoming her learning challenges to achieve extraordinary success!
