“Love Over Fear”: Highlights from the 34th Annual Lab School of Washington Gala

On the day of our 34th Annual Lab School of Washington Gala Honoring Outstanding Achievers with Learning Differences, one of the awardees, British Television and Stage Actor and Writer Lloyd Everitt answered a student’s question asking for advice about living and succeeding with a learning difference. Mr. Everitt said, “What I know is this … Fear shouts loudly. Intuition is a whisper. Listen closely. Then just flow. Love over fear.” Astute and poetic advice.
