Learning Ally - National Achievement Awards: Connor Brady

Connor Brady

Mendham, New Jersey

Connor is a freshman at Boston College with dreams of becoming a financial professional on Wall Street. He wasn’t diagnosed with dyslexia until his sophomore year of high school, and says that up until then, he often had to start his reading and writing assignments a week ahead of his classmates in order to stay on pace with them. “When I was introduced to Learning Ally, that was the day that changed my life,” he says. Connor began that school year with a C-plus grade in history, but after downloading and working with his textbook in audio format, he received an A-plus for the next marking period; and he went on to enroll in honors courses and make the National Honor Society. “Now I know I can become successful,” he says, “because I have the tools to help me achieve my dreams.”
