“It used to be something I’d try to hide, but at a certain point it becomes exhausting, and it’s much easier to call it out and say, ‘Yeah, I’m not going to do that because I can’t do that,’” Justin explained of his dyslexia.

He added, “Not in a defeatist way — you learn by my age the things you can excel at and the things you absolutely can’t do. So if it’s writing, acting, whatever, I feel like I can hold my own, but if it’s working out a tip or doing anything beyond fractions it gets more difficult.”
