Jace Norman - Wired Weird

Jace Norman - Wired Weird

TELL:CAMPAIGN

Consider this about actor and founder of Creator Edge Media, Jace Norman:

      • He’s 18-years-old

      • His snack of choice is Gushers

      • He loves to read

      • He has dyslexia

“All my older siblings had already learned to read by my age,” Jace says, reflecting on the pain of feeling he was falling behind his peers. While it’s true that dyslexia creates reading challenges, it’s truer that persons with the condition are often made to feel stupid.

Now let’s add that Jace is a superhero on Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger and thinks his dyslexia has inspired real-life superpowers. Though he can’t fly, you get the sense that he’s toying with the idea and—if his successful career is any indication—it could very well happen.

Check out these dyslexic superpowers:

      • Cross-Dimensional Awareness: seeing the bigger picture comes naturally to dyslexics, which is what Jace attributes to his acting career

      • X-Ray Vision: dyslexics can easily see hidden patterns and notice things out of place. This is the reason many mathematicians and astrophysicists are dyslexic

      • 3D Psychoprojection: dyslexics are better at visualizing 3D objects and spaces, which is why many of the world’s top architects, artists and fashion designers are dyslexic

Dyslexia is not a disease, it’s an alternative way of processing information. In the world of dyslexia, words like ‘wired’ and ‘weird’ may occasionally jumble on the page, but to be weirdly wired is cool by Jace.

So TELL the world you’re into improving understanding about dyslexia by purchasing your Wired Weird shirt. A portion of the proceeds go to Made by Dyslexia, a global organization led by successful (and famous) dyslexics whose purpose is to help the world properly understand and support dyslexia.

Food is my choice of education when it comes to learning about a culture. Unlike political regimes that might raze a culture, food is much more resistant to cultural change. We may speak different languages and have different perspectives, but we all need to eat.
