MIRANDA SMITH is a sophomore studying Computer Information Technology at Northern Kentucky University. She keeps herself busy between going to school full time, working as a waitress, coaching two cheerleading teams, and being a licensed Zumba instructor. Miranda joined the National Stuttering Association (NSA) in 2010 at the Cleveland conference. From there, she helped to begin the Cincinnati Chapter of the NSA and then the Youth Cincinnati Chapter of the NSA. She has been involved in Youth Days and is the teen host for the NSA Family Radio show. She also currently holds the position for the Teen Advisory Council Chairperson on the Board of Directors for the NSA.
Miranda believes that stuttering makes her a unique, strong person and doesn’t let stuttering hold her back from anything she wants to do. She says “do the unthinkable because nothing is impossible” and she strives to show others that they can’t miss out on their life because of a little bump in the road called stuttering.
