What Makes Bella So Special

One of the things that makes the Disney Channel so popular is that it has shows with relatable story-lines and Bella Thorne’s CeCe Jones of ‘Shake It Up’ fame is no exception. Having been diagnosed with dyslexia herself in the first grade, Bella could very realistically portray the ambitious, dyslexic dance prodigy on reel. One of the lesser known facts about Bella Thorne is that she was bullied in school, due to which she was home-schooled for a while. Drawing from her early experiences, she now often speaks out against bullying and encourages many others to do so. Her off-screen support for dyslexic kids is also inspiring.

Bella Thorne supports welfare campaigns and is involved in many philanthrophic activities along with charitable ones with different organizations like ‘,' ‘TjMartell Foundation,’ and ‘Friends of El Faro.’ She has also worked to spread knowledge and awareness about dyslexia. When asked about her dyslexia, she says, "I have to work extra hard because I am dyslexic. People said that I couldn't be an actress, but I'm proving them wrong. Acting has helped me overcome the challenge.”

Beyond Fame
