Entry: E088
Name: Lachie
Age: 10
Champion: Ms Morse, Kerry & Russell 

My name is Lachie.  I am 10 years old and it’s really hard to choose one champion.  

I have three people that help me with my dyslexia.  They are very kind and have helped me with lots of things especially my reading and writing and spelling.  

I didn’t believe I could do it at the start and also I couldn’t do very much but now I can do way more than I used to be able to do just because  all these people are willing to help me.  

Oh and the third one is a man and he helped me learn that I can actually do as much as a normal person can do.   I have known him for quite a long time and he helps me fix my bike.  I only just found out that he is dyslexic. Before he told me I didn’t know. 

Now I know a lot more than what I used to be able to do and that’s good because I couldn’t really do much and I was starting to feel down about it, so that’s amazing.  

I don’t want to just win because I have dyslexia.  Everybody doing this has dyslexia.  What I wanted to win is the C-pen because that would really help me in life because I can’t read.  Not the theme parks, none of that because I’m going to be able to read books with a C-pen.  That way I can actually learn some more.  It’s the C-pen that I really would like to win.  

The two dyslexia teachers have worked as a team to help me and I respect that because it has helped me a lot with my reading writing and everything I've been doing.   This has really helped me.  Because of these reasons it is really hard to choose just one.  

And so I pick all of these people – Mrs Morse, Kerry and Russell because they have actually all helped me with my dyslexia.   I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings so I picked all of them.  I don’t want to win the C-pen if it means hurting someone’s feelings.
