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.

When I was in 3rd grade my mom sat me down and taught me about the Holocaust. I always knew we were Jewish. I knew that my dad was a non-practicing Christian from a small town in Texas. I understood that my mother had a hard time with his family because they said anti-semitic things to her. My blood battled itself.

EP. 004 - SAMANTHA

I was diagnosed with cancer at 21. Instead of dealing with the trauma of my diagnosis, I bypassed the full spectrum of my experience by immediately looking for the gift. The silver lining we seek to make sense of life’s chaos. Asking what Samantha wanted or needed required too much honest self-reflection, so I began outsourcing guidance from society instead of looking for it within. I gave up my power. Thus, my connection to Self was severed.

When I was younger, I’d run straight to the Girls’ section for my clothes. They had all the colors, and to me, color represented joy. My mom never complied.
