Tackling the stutter barrier in Bogotá, Colombia

tartamudez en control

Wednesday, April the 4th seemed to be a normal day for most people in the world, but it wasn’t for three of those people, not for three courageous ones, not for three of many people who stutter. It was a cold afternoon in Bogota, the clocked marked 7 PM, a sea of thoughts burst in the head of these three new students. A new stage in their life was about to start.

As usual, we all remember our stages of childhood and adolescence with very marked moments. Happy moments, not so happy moments and also moments of pain. For people who stutter, these stages in our lives are marked even more, in that way, if each one of us mentally go back to our beginnings and go through our own life story, we’ll see that, with no doubt, the road hasn’t been easy. The simple fact of feeling that it has been that way, personally, fills me with pride.

How it is to live with a stutter

There was an intensive course of the McGuire Programme in Chile in which people who stutter learned techniques and tools to take control of their speech.

You can watch the full video here to know more about it.

On March the 21st an intensive course started in Mexico City, with 4 new students, 3 with an overt stutter and one with a covert stutter, 2 women and 2 men. The interviews started with some doubts and a bit of nerves but really excited for this great experience.

On the next day everyone was right on time and with a lot of encouragement in the room. Thursday ended with a lot of success from the new students.

My name is Malcolm Cisneros, I was born in Mexico City on November 1st 1984, under the Scorpion sign. My stutter started since I was 11 years old, at the beginning I could control it a little bit, but as time went by my stutter started to control me. My teenage years were very complicated, we all know that it’s hard and this problem complicated it even more, it was hard to go buy things, a lot of times I’d rather stay home than go out.
