Empowering You to Reach Your Full Potential

Posted by admin On February - 28 - 2012

Famed singer/songwriter Cher never read a word in school. Not because she didn’t want to, but because she couldn’t. Cher was one of the millions of students who went undiagnosed and untreated for a severe learning disability called dyslexia—a reading disability resulting from the inability to process graphic symbols. According to the article, “Cher Facing Dyslexia,” on GoodLearners.net, Cher has claimed: “I never read in school. I got really bad grades—D’s and F’s and C’s in some classes, and A’s and B’s in other classes. In the second week of the 11th grade, I just quit,” Cher goes on to admit, “When I was in school, it was really difficult. Almost everything I learned, I had to learn by listening. My report cards always said that I was not living up to my potential.

Long before she was the famous singer that we know today, she was a student who everyone was ready to give up on. In an academic environment, sitting behind a desk, Cher was falling further and further behind her classmates. Without the ability to read, Cher would have been completely left behind, had it not been for her exceptional ability to listen. Outside of the classroom and inside a recording studio, behind a microphone, Cher has found the environment where she can truly live up to her potential. Check out her empowering music video here.
