January 23, (THEWILL) – Ex-BBNaija housemate, Uriel Oputa, has revealed that she’s dyslexic.
Dyslexia is a disorder that affects reading abilities, characterized by difficulty in connecting speech sounds to letters and words.
The former reality TV star turned chef and nutritionist, shared this via her Instagram stories.
Uriel was responding to a message from one of her fans, who had complained that she sometimes found it difficult to make sense of the former BBNaija’s housemate’s writing.
She said: “Someone sent me a message, Uriel you are really nice, you are amazing, I love what you do, I just find it hard sometimes when I read what you write, only sometimes, you miss your comma, your full … I’m dyslexic! I am very dyslexic.
“Sometimes, I might get it right, and I might be Albert Einstein. Some days, E no gree! Comma, full stop, even alignment no dey gree. So leave me be, I’m dyslexic.
Uriel stated that on some days, she gets it right with her spelling, punctuation and others but on other days, it all doesn’t make sense, no matter how hard she tries.
“Sometimes I miss words even if I’ve checked 100 times. I’m extremely smart, but dyslexia is part of me.”
