Now Turkey Has a Voice

Turkey are a brand-new region in The McGuire Programme and we had the pleasure of launching the first ever course from 1st of May to 4th of May 2019. The course was held in Istanbul, which is the largest city in Turkey and perhaps also one of the most populated and largest cities in Europe. The city is divided by the famous Bosporus, which is where West meets East. Due to the location and easy access for flights the participants on this course came from different countries, such as Denmark, UK, Ukraine, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, making it an international course.

I have had a stutter as long as I remember. As a child I always felt that I was different from the other kids and I thought that my stutter was going to dictate my life. Once in the kindergarten a boy asked me why I was talking so weirdly. I tried to do my best to speak fluently and answered that I really was able to talk fluently, but that I was only messing with everyone and pretended to have a stutter. This is one of my earliest memories from my childhood and today I understand that I was already ashamed of my speech back then.
