So I ended up – once I realised what coping strategies I needed for my dyslexia, I then went to Handsworth College, went to Handsworth college and did a 7307, which is adult training, post-sixteen training in part one and two, which enabled me to teach in further education. So I did that, and it was just a drive. I wanted to know more about this dyslexia and I learned so much about it. Then I started a dyslexia group, adult dyslexia group which – down the road in Carrs Lane, which is – it’s still going, the adult dyslexia group that I formed with three other people from Handsworth College. And it’s still going now, which fills me with pride, that goes and I’m still – I do a lot with kids now.
