In this book, rising star entrepreneur Onyinye Udokporo shares her story of growing up dyslexic in a society where neurodivergence was always presented as a white male issue. Onyinye discusses her experience of being diagnosed at 11 years old, starting a business the following year, gaining a scholarship to a prestigious boarding school and going on to complete two degrees by the age of 22, while also being honest about the difficulties she faced throughout including with bullying and anxiety. She shares the tips she picked up over the years for thriving with dyslexia and the strategies she used to overcome her difficulties in reading and writing well, staying organised and speaking with confidence. Illuminating wider issues of systemic racism in the educational sector and providing a timely reminder that dyslexia can be found in any community and culture, this is an empowering story of surviving and thriving in the face of adversity.

It has been a great pleasure working with Onyinye through the Civic Leadership Academy. It's clear to see that Onyinye has a genuine interest in social mobility and ensuring that students from under-represented backgrounds are able to effectively navigate situations that will affect their future opportunities. Through the Civic Leadership Academy, Onyinye delivered a LinkedIn session to 50 Civic Scholars who will be starting an internship this summer. Her manner of presentation was engaging, and accessible to all learners and since her session, it has been fantastic to see how engaged students have been with LinkedIn, it definitely boosted their confidence! For those looking to deliver a similar session, I strongly recommend touching base with Onyinye!

Ambitious, talented and a great networker are some of the words that come to mind when I think about Onyinye. I first met Onyinye through a student focus group that I had orgainsed for the Civic Leadership Academy. From our first conversation it became clear that Onyinye had a real passion for education and social mobility. Since meeting Onyinye, she has contributed to CLA's leadership curriculum by delivering a personal branding LinkedIn session to a cohort of 50 Civic Scholars, and has gone above and beyond to connect me with incredible leaders across London! As a result of Onyinye's contributions, our cohort of Civic Scholars actively post their successes on LinkedIn, and have created a Civic Leadership Academy LinkedIn group to share resources and opportunities with one another. Onyinye earns my highest recommendation for facilitating sessions and would truly be an asset to any team or organisation!

“My session with Onyinye was incredible, she is so switched on, and she talks clearly and plainly, without any corporate jargon. Her marketing brain is so sharp that she immediately understood what I needed her help for, and how to get me where I needed to be. For someone who is shy about self-promotion, I was so hesitant, but Onyinye made the concept of branding and marketing myself seem really accessible and doable, and maybe even fun! I thoroughly recommend her."
