In a recent episode of Disney’s new show, Shake It Up, Bella Thorne’s character (CeCe) is forced to deal with a dyslexia – a reading disability.
What you may not know is that the line that separates fact from fiction is very close to Bella, at least in terms of dyslexia. The teen star also has dyslexia in real life, something that she is learning to deal with.
“I didn’t feel good about reading in front of anyone and didn’t want them to laugh at me,”she confessed to BOP and Tiger Beat. “Now, I feel proud. I really work hard at reading and accept that sometimes I might get confused and that it is ok.”
Bella continued, “My dad once said that a disability is only a disability if you let it be one. That has stayed with me and I’d like to share that.”
