studied hard I seemed to be failing. Luckily though my teachers and school system where I come from (Norway) is very good and dyslexia is known of and recognised, so I got help and by when I graduated at 15 I got almost top grades and could enter a high school of my choice. From then on I loved school. Especially getting older and studying something of once own choice and I could get deep in the creative field.
