Watch: Andrew Lewis to show youth how they can succeed with dyslexia

When he's not on the seas, Olympic sailor Andrew Lewis spends a lot of his time working with the young people of the nation. While he works alongside them through sailing programmes, he's also very committed to raising awareness about dyslexia and  Attention-Deficit-Disorder (ADD). 

Lewis has always been very open about having dyslexia and using himself as an example to demonstrate that the disorder isn't something that can impede on reaching one's full potential.

That is the theme to be presented at 'Succeeding with Dyslexia', a two-day seminar hosted by Lewis in collaboration with Atlantic. 

Taking place on Saturday, March 3 and Sunday, March 4, the free seminar is aimed at primary and secondary school children and will include coping and learning activities for children with dyslexia. In addition to Lewis, guest motivational speakers, Don La Foucade and Vivian Wall, will be in attendance. 

Andrew stopped by to speak more on the seminar as well as speak on similar future initiatives he has in the pipeline.
