I became an ambassador because I believe that literacy is the most crucial tool we possess.
It gives us abilities unique in our world- to comprehend, to argue, to express our experiences of being alive, and send them out into a world that can understand them.
It is the single most fulfilling, meaningful, practicable, and powerful skill that any person can have.
Failing to teach it to a single person is a profound waste of potential. Reading enriched my life by showing me a world in which possibility is limitless, regardless of who you are.
I share the WLF’s underpinning belief that we cannot rest until everyone can exercise their right to literacy.
