A Cardigan woman is hoping that as many Western Telegraph readers as possible will vote for her in the National Diversity Awards, as voting closes today.

Sarah Chapman left school with no qualifications after a "horrendous" time. Years later and she has been nominated as a positive role model in the National Diversity Awards.

Sarah was diagnosed with dyslexia as an adult. She said she was labelled a "failure" and "stupid" at school and was expelled months before her GCSEs.

She has now turned her life around. She is currently studying for a university degree, works as a volunteer campaign manager with the Dyslexia Association. She recently launched the Young Dyslexics website, where youngsters can share their experiences through short video presentations.

"I desperately want to improve the experiences of children with dyslexia, there is no reason for them to feel how I felt in school," said Sarah.

The National Diversity Awards is a black tie event which will be held in London on September 14. Voting closes today, July 18. To vote for Sarah visit http://tinyurl.com/pqp9zay .
