JULIANA ALBANO
ADVANCEMENT MANAGER

Juliana Albano

"This work is important to me because I believe that education is the most powerful and important tool a person uses to be successful in life. The two hallmarks of Eye to Eye's program—being a part of a community, and having a Mentor—are absolutely invaluable in the lives of youth. Everyone deserves to walk through life with their full potential and access to learning (in their own unique way)."

JULIA BARBIAN
NATIONAL PROGRAM COORDINATOR

"After I was diagnosed with ADHD during my first year of college, I quickly was forced to learn my differences as a thinker. After accepting this and learning to accommodate, I was able to excel as a student. I want to help others understand and feel confident with their learning differences not only to excel, but also to feel proud of their differences."

AUNYE' BOONE
DIPLOMATS PROGRAM MANAGER

"Eye to Eye strives to create a welcoming community for people with LD / ADHD and make what people think is their weakness, their greatest skill in life. I hope to add my sense of understanding, compassion for others, and unique perspective to Eye to Eye. It is important to encourage the Diplomats of Eye to Eye that they too have talents that can surpass the stigma that is so often projected in the workforce, school systems, and even at home."

OPERATIONS & EXECUTIVE COORDINATOR

Jamie Ergas

"When I was growing up with an LD, I wanted a mentor, someone who could help me to deal with the struggles I faced in and out of school. At Eye to Eye, I found a group of people committed to providing tools and support to many youth encountering the same challenges I did. I feel honored to be helping other people, offering advice to the next generation of people with LD and being one of the people our Mentors and Mentees can talk to and confide in."

MENTORING PROGRAM MANAGER

mariel

"As a student with ADHD and a processing disorder, I struggled to learn in the standard classroom environment. I was able to excel, as a student, once I acknowledged and accepted my differences as a thinker. Eye to Eye facilitates this acceptance and understanding of the culture of ADHD and learning disorders every day, and I love contributing to other learners' growth and understanding."

MICHAEL SCHUMACHER
NATIONAL PROGRAM COORDINATOR

MICHAEL

"I was aware of my LD from a young age, but consistently struggled to accept my dyslexia as something that would always be a part of the way I learn. Throughout most of my schooling, I hid my LD and struggled to learn like "everyone else" did. After I discovered the work that Eye to Eye does and started mentoring with the organization, I began to accept my LD as a learning difference, rather than a detriment. I am passionate to share the empowerment I have received through my work with Eye to Eye with others."

KAYLE WALLS
DIRECTOR of FINANCE & OPERATIONS

Kayle Walls

"At 16, my brother dropped out of high school after struggling in the traditional K-12 setting. He was diagnosed with ADHD in elementary school but was never taught self-advocacy skills and lacked the support that could lead to developing strategies to succeed in the classroom. Instead, he faced disciplinary action and was made to feel like a failure for not thriving in a structured, rigid environment..."

"During my childhood, I struggled with learning disabilities, specifically dyslexia, but I never let my LD define me as a student or a person. With the help of mentors and school programs, I learned to rise above my problems. I was able to accomplish many of the tasks that were difficult for me through a dedication to organization and attention to detail, which are attributes I'm now proud to call strengths."

STEPHANIE WHITHAM

"I spent too much of my life believing that I was alone and that my disability would inhibit me from accomplishing my goals. It wasn't until I joined Eye to Eye that I realized my learning difference was a gift that was not going to hold me back but was going to be the reason for my success."
