I started stammering when I was six-years-old.
School was hard for me, especially when I went to high school and had to make new friends.
But then I enrolled on a speech recovery course and was taught techniques to control my stammer.
I use these every day to speak with confidence.
I want people who have a stammer to know there is help out there.
I also want people to understand more about the speech impediment and to give people like me time to talk.
