Young Girl Can Instantly Speak Any Word Backwards
Holly Reyes 1/27/2016
When Alyssa was six years old and learning how to read, she taught herself a rare trick that is stumping everyone how she can do it so effortlessly. Today, she can instantly pronounce, without even thinking twice how to pronounce any word backwards!
In a car ride, her friends decided to put her to the test. Throwing both longer and shorter words at her, she was able to pronounce them backwards very easily. They were all blown away. She explains later that it is easy for her as she sees the image of the word in her mind and can say it backwards by reading it that way in her mind. She pronounces the words as you would usually pronounce them, just the other way around.
When she appeared on the Today Show to share her rare talent, even the pressure of being put on the spot would not hinder her ability. She was asked to pronounce super bowl, Facebook, french fries, and Brad Pitt, yet she never stumbled even once. Her beautiful smile shows the ease of it all. Training herself when she was younger proved to work well, and she has grown in a graceful confidence through her talent.
