Make Room For The Stuttering

A Small Part Of Me – Episode 146

Posted on: September 1, 2015

PamEpisode 146 features Kelly Tabra who hails from Trujillo, Peru. Kelly is 26 years old and is a psychologist working in marketing.

We cover a lot of ground in this episode. Listen in as we discuss apologizing for stuttering, being comfortable with one’s speech vs. happiness and the acceptance journey.

For a long time, Kelly considered her stuttering the enemy. Now, she doesn’t consider stuttering either an enemy or a friend. It is just a small part of her that she is ever learning to accept. We also discuss the benefits of stuttering, what good communication really is, and stuttering in several languages.

I ask Kelly about stuttering resources and support in Peru, of which there are very little. Kelly is glad to have found Stutter Social, the online support group. With Stutter Social, Kelly feels she is “part of something” which is key in her acceptance journey.
