– Michael Phelps (swim champion), Orlando Bloom (actor), Keira Knightley (actress), Walt Disney (film producer) and even Albert Einstein (physicist) struggled with dyslexia. – Solange Knowles (singer-songwriter) has ADHD. – Millie Bobby Brown (actress) was born with partial loss of hearing in one of her ears, and after years of tubes, her hearing completely faded away on that side. When she’s performing she can’t fully hear herself.
