Make Room For The Stuttering

Good Life and Stuttering

Posted on: July 14, 2012

I can’t resist sharing this video of Katherine Preston talking about her journey to finding her voice. I had the pleasure of meeting Katherine in person at a NSA conference and at a FRIENDS convention during the summer of 2010.

Katherine was a guest on my podcast “Women Who Stutter: Our Stories,” in the 25th episode Think With Your Heart in September 2010.

Katherine was interviewed by Jonathan Fields for his Good Life Project. Fields is the author of  Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance. I read this book last year, within a week or so of it’s release. I highly recommend it for anyone who needs a push outside of their comfort zone.

This is a great interview for two reasons. Katherine stutters with confidence, and Jonathan Fields is a patient and respectful interviewer who found no need to rush the conversation.

This is a must see – whether you stutter or not!

I like this post & video for Katherine.I am not stuttering but I am deaf which is a social challenge too.What I admire most is her attitude & confidence.As you said “Katherine stutters with confidence”

Khaled – welcome and thanks so much for sharing. I have to tell you how inspired I was by your comment, that you read Katherine’s lips to understand what was said and that you were able to see how confident she is.
I am quite sure that deafness is a real social challenge. Speech must be a challenge as well as not hearing.
All of us with differences contribute so much to the world and half the time we don’t even notice.
Hope to see you again here sometime.

Thank you for sharing Katherine’s story Pamela. Very inspiring. As a stutterer as well, I took a lot from this video. Thanks again.
