AMANDA SCHREIBER

Amanda Schreiber is pursuing a BA in English with a concentration in Writing Studies, and she is currently in her sophomore year of school. Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was raised just outside of the city where various teachers and experiences guided her towards a passion for reading and writing. Her present work was inspired by a course that she took in Fall 2018, where she had to create and design a two-page magazine article detailing a topic related to journalism/publishing. Thinking of a friend, she was drawn to people with dyslexia and the specifics behind their learning disability, particularly if there were any factors that made reading easier for them. If so, the hope was to bring awareness to these factors so that those in the journalism and publishing industries will be more considerate of those with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, making choices to give everyone an equal and easy reading experience.
