Starting a life story and telling it is not easy, there’s falls, hits, some harder than others, starting with this and having to remember everything that was lived is quite difficult. But my stutter helped me realize early how hard life is, this one will try to leave you on your knees every time it can, and it’s our duty to face it, stand up and beat it. The road is long for some, short for others, but we all end up in the same way. My life road hasn’t ended; I write this while I’m un university. I’m 18 years old and I’m a person who stutters.

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.
