Kate is thirteen years old and going into eighth grade. She was diagnosed with dyslexia in the fourth grade. Ever since then she has received useful assistive technologies, accommodations, and outside help. Today she gets straight A’s. Kate enjoys babysitting, track, cross-country, skiing, playing the saxophone, and hanging out with friends. She also likes paddle boarding and mountain biking with her family. In 6th grade, Kate started advocating and testifying at her local statehouse with Decoding Dyslexia, Massachusetts. She is very excited to be a YES! Ambassador and helping other children with their dyslexia.
