Mr. Leno,

I see where you’ll be performing on Friday night at 8 pm, on September 15, 2017 at the Beau Rivage Theater, in Biloxi, MS.  I live one-hour away. This school year, I launched the Center for Dyslexia and Talent (CDT) on the campus of the University of South Alabama, in Mobile, AL.  Is it possible to bring a group of dyslexic college students before your Friday night show to meet you and hear your story as it relates to dyslexia, both, your struggles and your overwhelming success?  You give the rest of us much hope on our journey.


The Center for Dyslexia and Talent (CDT) is a platform where college students who suffer from a learning disability can openly discuss and learn about all things positive regarding dyslexia, which leads to one’s healing and personal growth while in an intimate and safe environment. Any and all related-subjects will be explored including our childhood experiences and memories as students in elementary and high school, discussing the pain and fear that dyslexia has instilled in us as students and people. CDT is a support group where we’ll share our tricks for surviving school daily, identifying our lifelong weaknesses, which made school difficult, if not outright impossible. Over the course of the school year, we’ll learn how to become expert problem solvers, both, simple and complex ones that leads to our own personal truth and wisdom. We’ll explore and uncover our hidden strengths and natural talents that lead to us regaining our confidence while becoming stronger students as we recover our ambition, creativity and curiosity to learn and live while marching towards our life’s calling. Above all, the Center for Dyslexia and Talent believes that dyslexia is a gift and we admire all those who have it.
