The Journey Continues

I have been a person who stutters my whole life. Many people who know me will probably be surprised to learn about this. This is because I use my speech targets when I speak and come across as speaking fluently.

I'll touch on each of these numbers and the significance they hold for me. Being a person that stutters, I can say one of my most significant motivators has been when I've been told "you won't". You won't amount to much, you won't overcome your stutter you won't live a productive life.
