I was really lucky to have the opportunity (through the ninth annual Adam Jeffrey Katz Memorial Lecture hosted by the Child Mind Institute) to hear Trudie Styler, an actress, humanitarian and activist, speak about her struggles with dyslexia and ADHD. She is an amazing accomplished woman who exuded confidence, grace and a solid understanding of herself and her strengths. She spoke candidly about her struggles and what she did when nothing seemed to be working. And like many dyslexics, she attributed a lot of her successes to luck as opposed to the hard work that she obviously did to get to where she is today.
