The Difference between Me and You

Hi my name is Owen and I am not just a kid I am me just like how you are you but I have this thing called dyslexia that makes me think differently to others and makes me struggle with reading and writing (including spelling). Most teachers don’t know how to teach me so it’s always sad when I come home and tell my mum I am not learning anything at school so then every day when I wake up to go to school I always say “I don’t want to go because I don’t do anything at school I just sit at my desk and get bored” and then that moment when you ask someone how to spell something and they just talk to you as if you are dumb just because you didn’t know how to spell a word that he thought was easy.


There were many famous people who were dyslexic like Albert Einstein the scientist, Muhammad Ali the boxer, Richard Branson the founder of Virgin airlines, Pablo Picasso the artist, Henry Winkler the guy in happy days who is also the guy that has a book/TV show about a boy coping with dyslexia called Hank Zipzer. And there are so many others that have dyslexia that have accomplished great things like making people smile or impacting society and even inspiring people to do great things and know that even though you have dyslexia you can make the world a better place in some shape or form.
