    Ep 20. is with the CEO of Vessels of Hope, Dr Tracy Johnson.

    Tracy is a self professed lover of learning. Now a teacher and lecturer herself it was her innate curiosity and pervading love of knowledge which served as a beacon of hope in the problematic circumstances of her schooling.

    Underfunding, teachers insufficiently aware of the problems a dyslexic child faces and insensitive class mates were just a few obstacles she had to navigate.
    She uses the pain she endured to help children and adults with dyslexia avoid those same hardships.

    Vessels of Hope is a non profit organisation Tracy founded to help support similarly low income individuals with learning differences particularly with dyslexia. They lead workshops, spread awareness and empower children and adults with dyslexia.
