I started failing math. The school tested me to see why I was struggling and found out I couldn’t read the directions.

I was tested further and it was determined I was functionally illiterate. At the time, there weren’t many resources at the school to help someone like me, so they just put me in the basement with boys who were primarily discipline problems.
