Profiles / Stories
It’s always great to hear from those who have been successful.

"I will never foget the feeling I
had when I wrote my IGCSE exams. I studied hard, prepared well, yet no matter what I
did I could not finish my exams. I did ok in my exams, but knew there was
something more at play than simply my ‘exam technique’.
When I moved to London I shared
my concerns with my teachers and they booked a dyslexia assessment test for me.
The results came back and it turned out that I had dyslexia. The news was
a mixture of good and bad news. The good news was that I was right something was wrong; the bad news was
that there was something wrong with me.
The latter negative view was
quickly transformed, after I was told by the psychologist, that there is
nothing wrong with me, but rather my mind was different. It simply took a more
scenic route to arrive at the same destination. I embraced this difference
as it marked me out as
After finding out about my
dyslexia my grades skyrocketed from average to straight A’s. Dyslexia is part
of who I am, and I am proud of me. Embracing myself in my entirety, unlocked an
unshakable self-confidence which has helped me secure some of the most
competitive roles in large finance firms. Dyslexia helped me learn self-love,
which is my plus. I do not believe in disabilities or limitations. I will
achieve everything that I set my mind to, even if I have to take the scenic
route in getting there!" - Eno Mwamba

The key lesson that I take away from this journey is that, when you are competing with others, being ‘normal’ or ‘average’ is not necessarily an advantage. Here, success is less about keeping up with other candidates and meeting conventional standards; instead, it is about embracing the fact that remarkable people often have remarkable backgrounds, and can do remarkable things.
