Bella hated going to school as she was constantly bullied by her classmates: the girl was not only dyslexic but also lived in a suburban area and her English was pretty bad, as she spoke Spanish as her first language.

In her interview with American Cheerleader magazine, the actress explained that she overcame her dyslexia by religiously reading everything and anything she could find, including the labels of cereal boxes.
