Dyslexia is a learning disorder that involves difficulty reading due to problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words.

Mungai, who dresses Manchester United’s celebrated midfielder, Paul Pogba, said that she could not be who she is today if she did not have dyslexia.
