Jessie G., a 12-year-old has dyslexia and she has made it her mission to educate others about her difficulties with reading and spelling. She works hard every day to succeed in school, many times studying twice as hard as her peers. In fact, her teachers marvel at her solid work ethic.
Jessie views dyslexia as a gift. Due to the fact that she thinks a little differently, dyslexia has afforded her the creativity to act, sing, dance, play the bass guitar and write her own songs.
Jessie loves all things music and Broadway! She has been acting since the age of 6 and is serious about her craft. Along with Leggings for a Reason, Jessie is excited to have inspired the design for comfy and fun leggings that reflect who she is and what she hopes to achieve in life!
Jessie is committed to raising social awareness for We're all made of stars, we're all made of dreams" Jessie's leggings have a cute musical theme and they feature her favorite quote from Finding Neverland.
In partnership with Leggings for a Reason, Jessie will donate 100% of profits from the sale of these leggings to Learning Ally for her Mitzvah project, a meaningful, good deed Jessie has chosen as part of her journey towards becoming a Bat Mitzvah in March of 2018.
Support Jessie's dream and Bat Mitzvah project and purchase leggings that will inspire the dancer in your child.
