When I first started learning foreign languages, it was pretty straightforward: French followed by Spanish followed by Italian...now I do have experience with languages in different language families but it's still something that fascinates me. So I'm curious, have you studied languages in different families? 🤔

I knew I was different when I was in kindergarten. I brought home a painting I made and my family had to look at it in the mirror to read what I wrote. I try to adapt to my environment everyday and trust me, dyslexia extends far past reading and writing. For example when I take dance classes I see some of the moves in reverse or a rearranged order and disciphering between left and right is even more confusing! When I start to feel overwhelmed my vision becomes blurry and usually I can't even see myself in the mirror even when I'm in the front row! A trick that I do is I touch the side of my body that I want to move. I learn by doing things repetitively and memorizing the sequence rather watching and duplicating. It also helps when I dance near the instructor so I can see our reflection in the mirror and can see if I'm doing it right or in reverse. A lot of people like teachers, family and peers think that people with dyslexia are very smart but don't apply themselves or are lazy. The truth is people with dyslexia are trying harder than you can possibly imagine because we have to flip images around in our minds before we can come to the same outcome that your brain naturally processes. This is just one of many examples that dyslexia affects my daily life. When I was growing up people didn't know about dyslexia so I never used it as an excuse to limit my ability to succeed. I feel like it has made me a stronger person because it has taught me to adapt to my situation (fit in), I'm more outgoing (because I have to ask a lot of questions), I'm not scared to ask for help, I trust my intuition, I'm very compassionate, I'm a great teacher because I break things down at a comprehensive level, I'm creative and I enjoy problem solving since I have a unique perspective. 😊
