Picture of Vince Vaughn
Vince Vaughn, an actor and comedian. He is Dyslexic and ADD!
His teachers saw him as the class clown and a wild child. He had difficulty reading so he didn't really care about school work. He was more interested with fitting in than doing his home work.
"He would often be sent to the classroom with kids with learning disabilities, which frustrated him," (Success Story: Vince Vaughn, MU).

"[Vaughn] began to think that fitting in was more important than succeeding in school. He joined the wrestling team, played baseball and football and did everything he could to erase the truth of his disability in the eyes of his peers," (Vince Vaughn’s Dyslexia Leads to Success, Power of Dyslexia).

"Vaughn believes that he has not succeeded despite his disabilities, but that he has succeeded because of them. He is often quoted as saying that he would not be where he is today if he didn’t have dyslexia and ADHD," (Vince Vaughn’s Dyslexia Leads to Success, Power of Dyslexia).

"When you have these setbacks, you develop a really good work ethic, because you have to try harder."
