I’m Gonna Fight -Episode 98

Posted on: January 14, 2013


Episode 98 features Danielle W, who hails from the Bay area of California. Danielle is 17 years old and a senior in high school.

Danielle is currently applying to colleges, and hopes to double major in musical theater and either business or psychology.

As you will hear in our chat, Danielle is passionate about musical theater. We discuss how stuttering impacts Danielle when she performs, and what it’s been like for her on auditions.

Listen in as we also discuss family support, speech therapy and the need for a good sense of humor. Danielle is a fighter and doesn’t let her stuttering hold her back. “Just because someone hasn’t done it, doesn’t mean you can’t.”

Danielle is an inspiring young woman with a great attitude and outlook on life. It was such a honor to get to know her more. Danielle and I met at the FRIENDS conference last summer in Colorado.

Feel free to leave comments for Danielle in the comment section. Remember, feedback is a gift. Music used in this episode is credited to ccMixter.

YES. As a musical theatre person performing in a second language (at which I’m, well, frustratingly less-than-fluent), I find what Danielle does nothing less than fascinating. I wish I had her attitude more often. Cheers and best wishes in your future endeavours, Danielle; thank you for hosting this wonderful series, too, Pam! 🙂

Fabulous! Pam, you asked great probing questions, and Danielle you sounded very natural and sincere as always — and funny of course!! Great interview!

Pam, you are such a great conversationalist! Thanks for always having great stuttering things for me to listen to and read about! Danielle, you show a lot of character keeping such a positive attitude despite the discrimination you have experienced. I wish you good luck in whatever lies ahead!
