24th June, 7:30pm QLD time, Stutter Social video chat hosted by me! I’m excited to be a new host for the Stutter Social family! What is Stutter Social? As the name implies, it’s for people who stutter to be social and meet other people who stutter through a group video chat.

If only I had that fluency, I would…
If only I can overcome my stutter, I would…
Acceptance of what we have (such as stuttering) can lead to happiness with who we are. I don’t love or hate my stutter, it is what it is. I just want to talk and be heard for what I say, not how I say it.
