Meghan’s Story

Posted by in Contributor Biographies

My name is Meghan, I am nineteen years old, in my second year at East Carolina University, and an aspiring nursing student. I was diagnosed with dyslexia and a attention deficit disorder during my senior year of high school. I never fully understood why I still struggled with academics. To compensate for my lack of academic expertise, I focused on things that I excelled in, such as friendships, horses, cheer-leading, and clubs.
