Hamza Yassin to feature at Dyslexia Awareness Week event

Former Strictly Come Dancing winner, Dyslexia Scotland’s newest Ambassador Hamza Yassin will talk to an audience as part of Dyslexia Awareness Week Scotland.

The cameraman and television presenter will be accompanied by BBC Scotland’s Laura Maciver in conversation at a special event in Stirling to talk about dyslexia.

Hamza, who is dyslexic, joined Dyslexia Scotland as an Ambassador earlier this year. Newsreader Laura Maciver is a mum to two children with dyslexia.

Hamza said, “I’m passionate about sharing my own dyslexia story. I’m excited to open up conversations and learn from others as part of this role and hopefully help others along the way.”

The in-conversation event at the Albert Halls in Stirling forms part of Dyslexia Awareness Week Scotland 2023.
