Why this Work is Important To Me

As a student, I often struggled in school and felt very alone. Eye to Eye helped me find others who have shared similar experiences, and I became proud to embrace my own unique learning difference. I hope to help students realize that they have a community within Eye to Eye and can be proud of their learning style.
