Lachlan, a 15 year old from Winthrop has dyslexia and he is determined to someday study in Julliard – a prestigious performing arts school in America. Since receiving support from Variety through the Scholarship program, Lachlan has notched up several high performances.

“Lachlan is now attending a school whose primary focus is music so he is surrounded by like-minded students who jam at every available opportunity. He arrives home from school every day with a spring in his step”, said Jo, Lachlan’s mother.

“The Variety Scholarship has enabled Lachie to receive additional tuition that we may not have otherwise been able to afford in lieu of having two boys with Dyslexia and additional therapy needs. Music lessons on one instrument are expensive however his determination to be a multi-instrumentalist has us funding many more lessons. This would not have been possible without the help we received from Variety.”
