Our Founders

 
Shane Harrison Herman co-founded Let’s Get Booking as a 10 year old 6th grader in March, 2018. He was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was 8 years old. In his free time, he plays baseball, video games, and he loves reading to his dog Charlie. His favorite book is Papi by David Ortiz. His idea for lets get booking started when he noticed other students with dyslexia having the same issues in school as he did: low confidence and refusing to read aloud. In Shane’s experience reading to seniors he left with a ton of confidence, kind words of encouragement and new friends in his community. Shane Herman
