My name is Sky Rota, I’m 13yrs old & in 7th grade. I am a blogger/vlogger, Generation Z consultant. I’m severely dyslexic & have ADHD. I attend a school for kids who learn differently, I don’t use the term (Learning disabled) because I’m Not disabled! Just because I can’t learn in a conventional manner doesn’t make me disabled. Most of all, I don’t allow my differences to define me. I know first hand how my Generation thinks, moves, plays, spends & creates. We aren’t like any Generation before us, and Yes, We start at a young age. I consider myself a young ambitious entrepreneur who specializes in consulting with educators, parents, therapists, businesses & brands regarding everything Gen Z. I am also an authority on Dyslexia, ADHD, Learning disabilities & know first hand what its like to be bullied. I consult on everything generation Z related. Consider me your personal ambassador. I’m on an endless mission to give Generation Z an outlet to show the world their Strengths. You can find me on my websites, SkysCars.com & GenZinsider.com as well as SkyRota.com

Look Mom, I’m the Dumest One in My Clas is the true story of nine-year-old Sky Rota, who during the fourth grade discovers he is severely dyslexic, a disorder Sky and his parents aren’t familiar with.
Sky and his parents quickly learn dyslexia comes with as many gifts as it does challenges. Hopeful that his school would be understanding and help him embrace and develop his unique methods of learning, they soon realized that they would have to fight for him. Instead of encouraging Sky, his teachers punish him for his “weaknesses.” His school saw his dyslexia as a disability as well, labeling him as different and an outsider.
Join Sky as he and his family learn just how reluctant the education system is to accommodate the many different types of learners it’s supposed to teach. His bittersweet but ultimately uplifting journey of acceptance will prove that dyslexia is not a hindrance or disability – it’s a gift
