Maya Hawke opens up about dyslexia and how it’s a ‘great blessing’


Washington D.C.: American actor Maya Hawke in a recent interview delved into her experience with dyslexia. According to America-based news channel, during an interview with NPR, the 22-yearold star (also the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman) confronted that while it was “deeply difficult” to live with the learning disorder, she also found dyslexia to be “one of the great blessings of [her] life in a lot of ways.” She confessed, “But I did get, like, kicked out of school for not being able to read when I was a kid. And I went to a special school for kids with learning disabilities.” Maya added that it took her a long time to learn how to read and she is still limited. “There’s something about having had a limitation in regards to my ability to produce and take in stories that made me even more determined to love them and understand them and grow in them,” she said.
