Paul Orfalea


Kinko's founder Paul Orfalea was born in Los Angeles, California on Novemeber 28, 1947. Known to friends as Kinko due to his curly hair, Paul's childhood was anything but easy. He suffered from both dyslexia and ADHD. His inability to read or to focus in school led not only to bad grades, but to him being expelled from four out of the eight schools he attended. His condition wasn't understood by medical doctors, teachers or even his parents. His inability to read was once attributed to weak eye muscles. Doing eye strengthening exercises did no good. His siblings tried to help as well and Paul's parents paid them to help him learn to read. Once again he was unsuccessful.
