Talking to Strangers

Stutter Challenge – 100+ Contacts with Strangers

McGuire Programme Ireland received a lovely email from a person who was approached by one of our members on Shop Street in Galway, Ireland.
How I overcame my struggle to say my name.

Introducing yourself sounds simple right?! How I overcame my struggle to say my name.

I was challenged with a stutter, and there were days introducing myself and saying something as simple as my name was such a real-life struggle. And growing up with a stutter, I found it quite hard to communicate with people in general.
People who are working hard on overcoming stuttering who are helping people who stutter who want to do the same.

Actively doing something positive to overcome stuttering & making change our #1 priority.

WE CAN BE BETTER SPEAKERS EVEN WHEN WE STUTTER! Many of our members had a renewed energy and outlook in their everyday speaking challenges and can now face them with their heads held high and proud that they are working hard to overcome stuttering.
