Megan is a great ambassador for other students at Wanstead High School and she has genuinely made a difference to the lives of a number of her peers, particularly those who, like herself, are dyslexic. Not only is she a very active member of the student council, she also represents the school in a variety of extra-curricular activities such as the swimming gala, athletics and cross country. She has received a Jack Petchey Award for planning and giving a power point presentation about dyslexia in Assembly for Years 7-9, thus making an enormous contribution to the school's ethos of accepting other people's differences and difficulties and raising awareness of equal opportunities for all. She is always polite, happy and smiling and is often assigned to help new students who arrive mid-term to settle in. Recently, a new Year 9 student with dyslexia, who had behaviour issues at her previous school stemming from her inability to accept her own difficulties, was heard to comment, "It's OK to be dyslexic at this school." This proves that Megan is truly an inspirational student - she has excellent interpersonal skills, a great sense of humour and the ability to persevere despite her own difficulties in order to help others.
