I was seen as the dumbest person in school. Nobody had ever heard of dyslexia. I just looked at the blackboard, it was just a jumble. I had no idea what was going on, and therefore the idea that I could be successful didn’t dawn on me.

Personally, I actually think dyslexia in the real world can be a big advantage. We have a slightly different wiring to our brains, which enables us to think creatively and differently.
