Leah Graham joins Peter Reitzes to discuss navigating her way through the real world as a person who stutters. Ms. Graham is asked about her current speech therapy focussing on avoidance reduction, choosing self help and speech therapy when graduating college (a “do or die” moment), how okay she needs to be with her own stuttering, her plan to manage stuttering while making phones calls to buy a house, a recent report of a person being stopped at the border for stuttering, issues related to race and being an African American woman who stutters and so much more.
Leah Graham is 22 years old from Mount Holly, North Carolina. Ms. Graham graduated from the University of Mount Olive in May 2015 and is navigating her way through the real world as a person who stutters.
