    1: I did not know the illiteracy rates in my country but after doing research, I learned that in the United States, 21% of adults are illiterate and 54% of adults read on a sixth grade level or below. Further, 40% of students across the United States cannot read on a basic level.

    2: I believe the best way to reduce illiteracy rates in my city is to ensure that every individual struggling with illiteracy receives the help they need by connecting with a mentor who is committed to their success. Establishing organizations that offer one-on-one tutoring sessions can greatly improve one’s reading and writing skills. Further, building personal relationships, connecting with others, and mentors providing genuine support will help learners realize that others believe in them – encouraging them to believe in themselves.
