I know a lot of famous people who have dyslexia, who used it in the right context and it became an advantage for them. For example, we have Albert Einstein, Will Smith, Jace Norman, Bruce Jenner, Bill Gates and many more.
Just because you have dyslexia doesn’t mean you can’t be successful. You might find this as your weakness but you are not aware of the many strengths you possess.
