In The Shed – Nicola Rust – Inspirational Exhibitor interview blog

Introducing the fabulous … In The Shed aka Nicola Rust, she is a local inspirational exhibitor at Dyslexia information Day,  and really is inspirational, she is dyslexic and living her dream: Design Studio & Stationary Boutique! Your Name:  Nicola Rust   Your Business Name: In The Shed Dyslexic: Yes: I found out when I was 20, whilst studying at University   Attending DID 15 as: Inspirational guest exhibitor and volunteer   Why get involved:  When I found out I was dyslexic, I didn’t know much about it. I had previously assumed that it was just about poor reading and writing only, but it was only when I started to dig deep and research dyslexia as one of my Uni projects, that I realised both the gifts and challenges that dyslexia presents and make sense of my own experiences. I learned and truly believe that dyslexia is just a different way of thinking. Neither better or worse, just different. Just like I am short and can’t reach the top shelves of the supermarket yet talented in other areas in life, dyslexia is a difference not a disability. I wanted to inspire others to believe in themselves or their loved ones, people they work with or know that are dyslexic and help reduce the negative stigma associated with it.   Contact Details:  Website: www.in-theshed.co.uk Email: nicola@in-theshed.co.uk Phone: 07970592323 Twitter: @intheshed https://twitter.com/InTheShed Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/designedintheshed Instagram: @intheshed https://www.instagram.com/intheshed/   Describe DID: An inspiring day, welcoming, friendly, supportive, informative  ...
