I used to see my dyslexia as a weakness. I can’t spell, I’m terrible with numbers, reading aloud makes me anxious. You didn’t get “diagnosed” with dyslexia when I was at school; there were only “bright” and “slow” kids. Overcoming that lack of confidence from being in the latter group was a huge feat; and I worked excruciatingly hard to complete my masters degree. I now see my dyslexia as a great strength: It’s wired my brain differently. It gives me a unique perspective. And the work ethic that got me through school propelled me to where I am today.
