"CROSS is crying not because he is weak & vulnerable.. but because blood flows through his veins and he is human!
"Growig up, Cross has battled with ‘Dyslexia’ - a learning disorder largely characterised by difficulty in grasping new words and in reading, due to challenges identifying speech sounds & learning how they relate to letters and words.
"As an adult, he has managed to bottle this up while making efforts to work on this challenge. We ALL have our personal battles which we struggle with daily, without anyone knowing and Cross is no different."
