“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I learn. Involve me and I remember”. – Benjamin Franklin
“I had to train myself to focus my attention. I became very visual and learned how to create mental images in order to comprehend what I read.” – Tom Cruise
It was with great regret that I didn’t do better at school. People just thought I was thick. It was a struggle. I never really understood dyslexia and who could bring out my strengths.
Being dyslexic can actually help in the outside world. I see some things clearer than other people do because I have to simplify things to help me and that helps others.
I fell in love with drama at school, where i struggled with other lessons because of my dyslexia.
