In an exclusive interview for Friends of Quinn, Steven Spielberg sits down to talk with with Quinn Bradlee about how dyslexia has shaped his life.

Friends of Quinn, a website that seeks to empower those with learning differences aged 18 to 35, reached out to the award-winning director to help show that dyslexia and other problems shouldn’t hold young people back from becoming independent and building their own lives.
