hey ~ what's up ~ hello

 

Much like Lea Michele, there are people who are convinced I can’t read. Most of them from my 6th grade biology class, who had to suffer through me stuttering our textbook as our teacher forced us to take turns reading aloud. Growing up with dyslexia I never thought writing would be a viable career choice for me. I mean in 10th grade while writing an essay about the Crucible I couldn’t remember if the book was about whiches, witches or whitches. 

 

It wasn’t until the end of college that I found out dyslexia was actually what made me a good writer — a good copywriter for advertising to be exact. It’s proven that dyslexic thinkers test 70% or more above average in these 5 areas: imagination, communication, reason, connection and exploration. I’ve realized that my dyslexia is what allows me to approach briefs with fresh angles, craft engaging stories, explain complex ideas in simple language, empathize with others and be constantly curious. Basically dyslexia is my super power. 

 

tldr; I’m a copywriter that can’t spell but is pretty good at all the other stuff.
