By Ron Finley

 

For some, the connection between dyslexia, designing clothes and green activism may seem unrelated but for me, it’s the most natural connection in the world. It got me to where I am today.

 

I’ve always been the kind of person that when I want to do something, I just figured out a way to do it.  I didn’t let the fact that I was dyslexic stop me from doing what I wanted to do, even though I went through school thinking something was wrong with me because I couldn’t read like the others. Then I realized, there were a lot of things I could do that others couldn’t. The way I think is sideways, and that there might be a better route to take than the one that the crowd is following.
