Let me begin by saying that I am a person who stutters, but despite this I still continue to pursue my dreams in the medical field. All throughout grade school and high school I’ve been bullied for my stutter. The teasing was demeaning and just made me want to curl up in a ball and hide. That was when I found my passion for writing. Writing for me isn’t a chore, its freedom and a way to express myself fully.
My dream as of now is to go into the medical field, and become a Physical Therapist. I’ve completed a full year of college and I’m understanding the “college experience” both in a good and bad way. The good being I’m gaining new friends and actually becoming more sociable (gasp). The bad being that sometimes some teachers don’t want to help you succeed, and I found that out the hard way. I’m developing more confidence in myself, which is helping me engage more and not worry about stuttering. However this fear is still present and for many if us, that fear can stay with us for what feels like a lifetime by. But even this we can overcome.
