Strategy and Creativity are literally in my DNA.
Hi, I'm Helene Abrams, and I was born with Dyslexia. I grew up in a time when very little was known about dyslexia, so I struggled a lot in school. Recently, neuroscience has discovered that dyslexia is not a handicap but a genetic difference in which dyslexics are wired to see things differently. The way our brains process information is now called “Dyslexic Thinking.”
My unique way of thinking is connected to how I process information. My brain assesses information and approaches problem-solving that involves pattern recognition, spatial reasoning, lateral thinking, and interpersonal communication. I think in pictures, and as the pictures grow, I connect the dots and process more concepts— giving ideas a new spin. This also allows me to quickly see past unnecessary details to gain a strategic, much faster way of coming up with solutions most would never think of.
The things that make life a little more difficult can also become our greatest gifts.
The years of failing at grade school taught me early on that when people said something was impossible, I shouldn’t believe them. This created a mindset in me of “why not try a different way?”
Like most child dyslexics, I turned my “disadvantage” into my strength by using my creative mind and problem-solving skills to overcome my learning difficulties.
After graduating high school, I went on to earn my degree in graphic design and advertising (from one of the top design schools in the world Pratt Institute -where I graduated on the Dean's List ), and I've been doing it professionally ever since.
This mindset helps my clients avoid stress and uncertainty as I hold their dreams for them while they become BRANDED and design a smooth, straightforward path to reach their goals!
In short, while others think in just one step, I can see the end zone.
Use my dyslexic thinking skills for maximum clarity, creativity, agility, and market domination:
