I found out i was dyslexic 2yrs after i had left school, whilst at school i was picked on for being stupid, and because i didn't know i was dyslexic, i didn't get the help i needed, and as a result my GCSEs are really poor, so went back to college to try re-sit them, and actually got kicked out of college because they said the work was too intense for me!
From a very young age though i had always wanted to join the armed forces, so thats what i went an done! i joined the Royal Navy with no help! passed all of selection, all the academic tests, during me time at HMS Raleigh i was there TWO DAYS an they picked my dyslexia up straight away and were brilliant! helped me better than anyone ever did!
Finally i had a really for struggling at school, i wasnt stupid i just wasn't being taught in a way i would remember! I think the teachers were c**p because they obviously couldn't find a way that i would learn!
Currently i am no longer in the navy, i am going to college in september to give me the qualifications to goto university an train as a paramedic!
