My name is Lewis and I want to get real with you for a minute.
I’ve always dreamed big, wanted to make something of my life, and deeply cared about people.
However, as a kid I suffered emotionally in a major way. I always felt like the dumbest person in class.
I was tall, skinny, goofy looking, constantly made fun of and never felt I had any real friends until later in high school.
Reading was a major challenge for me. I couldn’t comprehend and read out loud what I saw in books. I was in the bottom of my class academically, insecure, and looking for ways to fit in.
There were many moments I didn’t understand why I was born; I was bullied, picked last in sports, and experienced constant tension at home.
