Thanks for your delightful letter. It is so nice to receive a handwritten note that I thought I’d write one back! Also so glad to hear you enjoyed the videos.

Don’t ever let people put you down for being dyslexic. Being dyslexic is actually an advantage and has helped me greatly in life.

I look forward to hearing what great things you’ve achieved in life.

Best wishes to you and the family.

Much love, Richard Branson’
