    Everyone is always asking me what my accent is, but the truth is I was born in my country of residence (Canada). While it is true my parents were from England and have English accents, I only lived there one year myself and my sisters, also born in Canada, do not have accents...

    Insparation For Me To Keep On Doing What I Do!

    It was hard. I did it from ages 3-7.

    I still can't hold a decent conversation I just rant on about what I want to say. It hasn't always been easy. No doubt I wasn't the cool kid in school. I don't stutter thank god.

    When I Was 4...

    I went to occupational therapy for my speech and to develop my upper body strength because I was born 2 months early. That was just about my entire 4th year. I stuttered all the time. I'm glad I'm not the only one. :)

    Sh - S

    I mixed "s" and "sh" up all the time as a kid. Most of the time it wouldn't be a problem, but there are some words that have different meanings, depending on the s/sh. So I had speech therapy in kindergarten. I had those cards that had pictures of things...

    I was in speech from 3-11

    and I still can't say my R's very good. I hate it when people don't get it and make fun of me. People just have to understand that not everyone can talk "right" I'm just different
