JULIANA ALBANO
ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT

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)."

"As a student with ADHD and a processing disorder, I struggled to learn in the standard classroom environment.

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."

ALYSSA TIERNEY
OUTREACH AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT COORDINATOR

Alyssa Tierney

"When I was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD at the age of 18, I thought having a learning difference was negative. Eye to Eye helped to change my perspective and realize what a benefit my LD/ADHD was. When I finally felt empowered, I was able to excel as a student. I am so excited to help other members of the LD/ADHD community to realize their full potential."

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..."
