Hannah Moore

Hannah Moore is an 18-year-old college student at a community college in Colorado. She is 2E, or twice exceptional: both dyslexic and gifted. As a YES! (Youth Examples of Self-Advocacy) Ambassador, Hannah has spoken publicly about her dyslexia and its challenges to students, parents, teachers, administrators, and boards of education, and at conferences and seminars. Her dyslexia makes it challenging to put stories to paper, but through hard work and perseverance, she was able to write a book and self-publish it. She continues to write stories and hopes to realize her dream of turning her stories into screenplays and movies. Hannah wants to continue to inspire dyslexic people and advocate for them. She believes that dyslexia does not control you or defeat you and that it should be celebrated, not feared.
