“I learned to read at the age of 63. I realized I could not read enough to help my children with their homework. This realization brought me pain and shame the most. I gave up on many things because there was a form to complete or a complaint to write or instructions to read. I had not fooled everyone and it was a relief to admit it.

I am no longer afraid of a piece of paper with words on it and most of all, I enjoy reading very much.”
