15. Malcolm Gladwell, Canadian journalist and Author

“An incredibly high percentage of successful entrepreneurs are dyslexic. That’s one of the little-known facts.”

14. Richard Branson, British Business Magnate

“Once freed from archaic schooling practices and preconceptions, my mind opened up. Out in the real world, my dyslexia became my massive advantage: it helped me to think creatively and laterally, and see solutions where others saw problems.” —

13. Bella Thorne, American Actress & Singer

“Dyslexia makes things hard for me, but not impossible…I’ve learned to face problems, not run away from them.”

12. Steven Spielberg, American Filmmaker

“Dyslexia was the last puzzle part in a tremendous mystery that I’ve kept to myself all these years. Remember! You are not alone, and while you will have dyslexia for the rest of your life, you can dart between the raindrops to get where you want to go. It will not hold you back.” —Hollywood

11. Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Ph.D, Astronomer & Space Scientist

“Failing isn’t a problem—interesting things happen along the way, as any entrepreneur will tell you.  After all, I haven’t actually become an astronaut, but I still hope.  And in the meantime, I do get to space with the instruments and technology I help create…Dreams don’t show up on government surveys or school league tables, but they are the fuel that makes us want to get up and get on.  For young people to feel that the low road is the only one available to them is nonsense. We won’t climb out of recession, or meet the challenges of climate change, by thinking small.”

10. Orlando Bloom, English Actor

“You can take this obstacle [dyslexia] and make it a reason to have a big heart. It takes obstacles to learn, grow, be better.”

9. Caitlyn Jenner, Olympic Gold Medalist & American Television Personality

“My greatest gift in life was being dyslexic. It made me special. It made me different. If I had not been dyslexic, I wouldn’t have needed sports.”

8. Whoopi Goldberg, American Television Personality

“Dyslexia made me more introspective. Made me more thoughtful, maybe slightly slower in how I do things because it takes me a minute sometimes to figure things out.”

7. Jamie Oliver, Famous British Chef

“If I’m in a meeting I just see the problems differently and I obsess about things differently. Some bits of work need to be sweated over and cried over and crafted. Because I’m dyslexic, sometimes, when it requires a load of stuff to be done, I just do it. It’s like I’m a massive ten-tonne boulder rolling down the hill.” —RadioTimes

6. Rick Riordan, American Author

“Dyslexic kids are creative, ‘outside-the-box’ thinkers. They have to be, because they don’t see or solve problems the same way other kids do. In school, unfortunately, they are sometimes written off as lazy, unmotivated, rude or even stupid. They aren’t. Making Percy dyslexic was my way of honoring the potential of all the kids I’ve known who have those conditions. It’s not a bad thing to be different. Sometimes, it’s the mark of being very, very talented.” —

5. Charlotte McKinney, American Actress

“Whenever people talk about dyslexia, it’s important to know that some of the smartest people in the world, major owners of companies, are dyslexic. We just see things differently, so that’s an advantage. I just learn a different way; there’s nothing bad about it.”

4. Guy Ritchie, English Film Director & Producer

“It’s about not letting the internal enemy, the real enemy, have his way because the more he does the stronger he becomes. The film’s about the devastating results that can manifest from the internal enemy being unbridled and allowed to unleash chaos.”

3. Sir Anthony Hopkins, Oscar Winning Actor

“As a boy, I wasn’t very bright. I didn’t even know the time of day I was in school. I think I had dyslexia or some learning disability. I certainly didn’t fit in anywhere. The years passed and a feeling of failure was always with me until by accident I came across this career, and look at what has happened! Of course, I don’t regret anything because, in the long run, look what I’ve accomplished.”

2. Benjamin Zaphaniah, British Poet, Playwright and Author

“Being dyslexic has made me realise that the best readers and writers in the world can be very dull if they don’t use their imagination.”

1. Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice

“Dyslexia is not a pigeonhole to say you can’t do anything. It is an opportunity and a possibility to learn differently. You have magical brains, they just process differently. Don’t feel like you should be held back by it.”
