Love hearing wonderful success stories from dyslexic thinkers. Ando has #dyslexia  and used to get caught selling doughnuts at school… Now he runs @thehappaningapp  and it’s set to change the way people experience video: @VirginStartUp 

Happy birthday @HollyBranson . Time really does fly, but I’ve enjoyed every single moment of watching you grow into the most wonderful woman. So proud to call you my daughter.

Thank you for having @HollyBranson  and me on your #10xBolder  podcast @thebteamhq . We spoke about everything from overcoming fear, embracing failure, and bringing people together to solve the world’s biggest problems. Listen here: #NewLeadershipPlaybook

This is the moment we told Keisha Schahaff she’s won @virgingalactic ’s @omaze  competition and she’s going to space… Her reaction brought tears to my eyes! @SpaceHumanity 

I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

It’s that time of year again – feels like it has crept up on us so quickly! Always wonderful to see the @adventofchange  charity advent calendars come out each year - it includes two charities very close to my heart - @bigchange_  and @MadeByDyslexia :

These @made51_global  decorations are handmade by refugee artisans. They are a beautiful way to celebrate hope & a great gift if you’re looking for something meaningful this year: #MADE51gifted

I was once a child with a dream looking up to the stars. Now I'm an adult in a spaceship looking down to our beautiful Earth. To the next generation of dreamers: if we can do this, just imagine what you can do #Unity22  @virgingalactic

There are no words to describe the feeling. This is space travel. This is a dream turned reality @virgingalactic  #Unity22 

Great to hear @justinbieber  & @scooterbraun  are latest @virgingalactic  future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!

It’s a beautiful day to go to space. We’ve arrived at @Spaceport_NM . Get ready to watch LIVE at 7:30 am PT | 10:30 am ET | 3:30 pm BST #Unity22 

I’ve always been a dreamer. My mum taught me to never give up and to reach for the stars. On July 11, it’s time to turn that dream into a reality aboard the next @virgingalactic  spaceflight #Unity22
